Pavel Timofeyevsky

Pianist and composer Pavel Timofeyevsky, winner of the prestigious BBC/Guardian Young Composer of the Year Award, is praised for his “shimmering undertones, transient reality and sunlit rays full of rapturous colours” (Pulse UK).  Pavel has performed at major concert venues worldwide including the Royal Festival Hall, Wigmore Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall, Shanghai Oriental Centre for Arts, Fred Kavli Theatre in Los Angeles, Mumbai National Centre for Performing Arts, and Guangzhou Opera.

His recent sold-out New York debut at the Merkin Hall of the Kaufman Music Center has received standing ovations and brought him invitations to debut in Paris and Venice. Pavel Timofeyevsky’s tour in Kenya “moved hundreds of music lovers” (The Star Kenya), while his sensational debut in Florence led to La Repubblica describing him as “one of the most versatile pianists”, the renowned photographer Gianni Ugolini featuring him in his Celebrity Calendar.

Pavel Timofeyevsky has extensively performed for Yehudi Menuhin’s Live Music Now, and he is recognised for establishing the Kensington Music Society Series of lecture-concerts. He is a highly sought-after soloist and chamber musician, with his performances and interviews have been broadcasted on major radio and television stations such as BBC Radio 3 and TF1 TV. He is a fervent advocate of contemporary music, and he was featured in the album ISLAS by British composer Ian Stewart for the Music Chamber label, as well as in an album dedicated to the chamber music of Hans Gal for the Toccata Classics label.

Pavel is also a sought-after composer, who has composed for several films including the critically acclaimed documentary Le fin de la belle époque for the Russian television, and for Russia’s oldest animated film studio, Soyuzmultfilm. In addition, he has starred in and recorded the soundtrack of the US documentary, Tchaikovsky.
