Pavel Gililov

Prof. Pavel Gililov, who was born in the former Soviet Union, gave his first concert with an orchestra at the age of eight. His extraordinary musical talent was discovered by Dimitri Kabalewsky, on whose recommendation he began his studies in St. Petersburg (Leningrad), where he graduated with distinction.

Pavel Gililov already won the national piano competition in Moscow as a student in 1972; he thereupon began his solo career. In 1975, he won the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw and, in 1978, the International Viotti Piano Competition in Vercelli. In the same year, Gililov emigrated to the West and has since been pursuing his concert career with leading orchestras in the main cultural capitals of the world.

Pavel Gililov is a welcome guest at important music festivals such as the Salzburg Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Edinburgh Music Festival and others. Since 1997, he has been Artistic Director of the "Sommerclassics", a music festival in Rhineland-Palatinate.

At Cologne’s College of Music, Pavel Gililov teaches a master class for piano - and another at the Mozarteum University in Salzburg. He also freuquently leads master courses in Europe and the Far East.
