Xenia Pestova

Pianist Xenia Pestova presents an unusual and quirky programme drawing connections between the music of J.S. Bach and pieces by living composers Ed Bennett (Ireland), Heather Hindman (Canada), Glenda Keam (New Zealand) and Ailis Ni Riain (Ireland).

Described as “outstanding” (Tempo), “stunning” (Wales Arts Review), “ravishing” (Pizzicato) and “remarkably sensuous” (New Zealand Herald), pianist Xenia Pestova’s performances and recordings have earned her a reputation as a leading interpreter of uncompromising repertoire of her generation. Her widely acclaimed recordings of core piano duo works of the Twentieth Century by John Cage and Karlheinz Stockhausen are available on four CDs for Naxos Records. Currently, she is the Director of Performance at the University of Nottingham, and continues to mentor emerging musicians in workshops at conservatories and universities around the UK, Europe, Canada, New Zealand, USA and Brazil.
