Violin and Piano Recital: Tcherepnin and Prokofiev

Prize-winners of multiple international competitions, violinist Francois Pineau-Benois and Pushkin House Music Curator pianist Alexander Karpeyev join forces to present a unique programme featuring Tcherepnin’s rarely performed violin sonata. Known for his sensitive, romantic interpretations, Francois is descendant of the renown Benois family.

Born in 1994, Pineau-Benois began violin studies at the age of four. He studied at the Bordeaux Conservatoire, then the Versailles Conservatoire and entered the Higher Paris Conservatoire (CNSMDP) at the age of 14. He received his Master Degree in violin performance in 2014 at the age of 19 followed by a Master Degree in Chamber Music obtained in 2017. He continues to perfect his skills with Régis Pasquier at the Ecole Normale de Musique of Paris. His training is completed by masterclasses with Salvatore Accardo, Maxim Vengerov, Rimma Sushanskaya, Felix Andrievsky, Ulf Wallin, Michaela Martin or Constantin Serban.

Recently featured as ‘One to watch’ in International Piano magazine, Alexander Karpeyev is a Russian pianist resident in the UK, who has performed throughout the UK and Europe and toured in the USA, Canada and Russia as a concerto soloist, recitalist and chamber music collaborator.
Karpeyev trained at the Moscow Conservatory with Vera Gornostayeva and Alexander Mndoyants and the Guildhall School of Music & Drama under Joan Havill. He is the winner of the Dudley International Piano Competition as well as the Norah Sande Award and the holder of a Silver Medal from the Worshipful Company of Musicians. In 2014 he completed a performance practice doctoral degree at the City University, based on the Edna Iles Medtner Collection at the British Library.
