Well-known British pianist Peter Donohoe and the Sacconi Quartet will give a series of concerts in Krasnoyarsk, Kemerovo, Nobosibirsk, and Barnaul from 14 to 18 February 2020.

Peter Donohoe has sometimes been called a 'sculptor' of the piano'. He possesses an extraordinary sense of musical expression. His notable performance at the 1982 Tchaikovsky International Competition earned this engaging pianist a spectacular victory. Thanks to his superb technique, sense of style and a harmonious combination of intellect and fiery temperament, he has made a sparkling career – he has performed with  150 orchestras including world-class ensembles such as the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic orchestras and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. He has collaborated with many leading conductors and has won the hearts of audiences the world over. Peter Donohoe was a member of the Piano Jury for the 15th Tchaikovsky International Competition.

Peter is joined for these concerts by the well-known British string quartet, the Sacconi Quartet. Formed in 2001 by four graduates of the Royal College of Music in London the Sacconi Quartet has gained widespread recognition from its performances at prestigious concert halls in the UK and at music festivals both at home and throughout Europe. The musicians have been awarded several prizes at chamber music competitions. The quartet is named after the leading 20th-century Italian violin maker and restorer Simone Sacconi whose book The Secrets of Stradivari is essential reading for any violin restorer.
