Russian Song series opens at Wigmore Hall



Saturday 22 September marks the first recital in Iain Burnside’s major series of Russian Song throughout the season at Wigmore Hall, which features multiple Askonas Holt artists in upcoming performances within the 2018/19 season. For the inaugural concert, Olena Tokar, Pavel Kolgatin, and Nikolay Didenko perform works by Rachmaninov, Medtner, Shostakovich, and Myakovsky among others, and will showcase a selection of repertoire rarely heard in the UK.

This marks Pavel’s debut at Wigmore Hall and the beginning of the new season. Next, he travels to Naples for Così fan tutte at Teatro di San Carlo under Riccardo and Chiara Muti, before returning to Vienna where he continues his festival contract. Nikolay also debuts at Wigmore Hall, returning to play with Iain following a successful album recording of ‘Medtner: Songs’ with Delphian Records last year. He travels to Malmo Opera next for Der Fliegende Holländer.

The performance marks Olena’s return to the Wigmore Hall, having previously sung with Pianist Igor Gryshyn in 2015. Olena has a close connection with the UK having been a BBC New Generation artist for 2013, and most recently, she made her highly acclaimed Grange Park Opera house and role debut as Juliette in Gounoud’s Roméo et Juliette.
