Pavel Karmanov is one of the few contemporary composers that create melodically beautiful and easy-to-understand music. The graduate of Moscow Conservatory and a member of the iconic avant-garde rock band Vezhlivy Otkaz has mastered different composer’s techniques — from serialism to pseudo-baroque, but minimalism has left a distinct mark on his creative work. His favourite contemporary composer is Michael Nyman, and Karmanov sometimes engages in his works in a dialogue with the British musician.

The concert will include five post-minimalist works for piano and strings. This is “the best of Pavel Karmanov”, a collection of his best-known compositions, including the high-profile Trout Quintet. The compositions will be introduced by the author.
