Russian classical pianist and honored artist of the Russian Federation, Pavel Nersessian performs the work of composers who were born in the Russian Empire but spent much of their creative life abroad.


After graduating with maximum marks — a rare distinction — from the Moscow Conservatory, Nersessian taught there for more than two decades before joining the faculty of Boston University. Nersessian has won prizes in every competition he has entered, and now serves on the juries of major piano competitions around the world. He has toured since the age of eight and has performed on five continents. Nersessian has given master classes in the USA, Russia, Estonia, Kazakhstan, Ireland, Germany, Spain, Italy, Korea, Brazil and Japan.
