Notes & Reviews:

Elena Kolesnitschenko is known by the documentary film of the german director Irene Langemann: &dbquo;prodigie-childs of Russia“ (2000) and his continuation &dbquo;The competitors – prodigie-childs of Russia II“ (2010), in which she accompanies life and problems of an adolescent child prodigy. She has mastered the step of the child prodigy to a well-known pianist long ago and receives enthusiastic aplause today from the audience in concert halls in the whole world. Elena Kolesnitschenko grew up in Charkiw/Ukraine. At the age of seven years, Elena started to play piano, and already with nine her international career began: She debuted with a concert of UN in New York as well as in the residence of the Pope in Vatican. A typical representative of the Russian piano-tutor, qualified in Moscow, she came in 2000 as 18-year-old girl to Germany to continue her study with Vladimir Krainev, formerly pupil of Heinrich Neuhaus, in the college of music Hannover. However, only the meeting with Hatto Beyerle, the founder of the Alban-Berg-Quartet, helped her to become that artist's personality, which admires the audience today on the stage. Particularly Beethoven is her favorite composer.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Kolesnitschenko has a fine touch for the early sonatas. She is particularly crisp and adept in the first movement of Sonata 7 and extracts great fluidity and lyricism from Sonata 10. The same clarity Kolesnitschenko demonstrates in the piano sonatas serves her well in Souvenirs de Beethoven.
