Vitaly Pisarenko photo - Russian pianist in London

16 April, 2015 at Wigmore Hall


You are invited to a very special concert featuring the extraordinarily talented young Russian pianist, VITALY PISARENKO, who will be playing at Wigmore Hall in London on Thursday, 16th April (7.30pm).  Vitaly won the prestigious International Franz Liszt Competition in 2008 (aged 21) – and as the eminent pianist, Leslie Howard said:  ‘This will be a concert about which, in years to come, the lucky people who were in attendance will be able to say: “I was there when the great Pisarenko gave his first Wigmore recital!”’



‘An immensely gifted pianist, with prodigious technique, myriad shadings and scrupulous accuracy.’ - New York Times

‘One of the most precocious and original young talents of the keyboard … with a prodigious musicality supported by astounding technical accomplishment. Certain to be one of the foremost pianists of his generation.’ – Leslie Howard

‘Here is a young pianist who is full of temperament, fire, intelligence, imagination and sensitivity. He is already on the path to greatness.’ – Janina Fialkowska


Vitaly Pisarenko gave his first public recital at the age of six. He studied at the Central Music School and State Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow – and, since 2012, has been studying with Dmitri Alexeev at the Royal College of Music. He completed his Master’s degree at the RCM (with distinction) in 2014;  and is currently studying at the RCM for an Artist Diploma and is an Emma Rose Scholar supported by a Kenneth and Violet Scott Award. He is also studying at the Piano Academy in Imola, Italy with Boris Petrushansky.  He performs regularly as a soloist with leading orchestras and ensembles, and as a recital soloist, throughout the world.
