Pavel Kolesnikov, as he waits for his plane in Seattle, tells Cara Lieurance he is fascinated by micro details - in music, in photographs, even in observing ordinary objects in an airport. It's a quality that brings new insights into music thought to be trifling, like Tchaikovsky's The Seasons, or well-trodden, like Chopin's Mazurkas. 

Kolesnikov performs a program of CPE Bach, Beethoven, Chopin and Debussy for The Gilmore's Rising Stars Series on Sunday at 4 pm in the Wellspring Theatre of the Epic Center. More information is as The Gilmore Keyboard Festival website.
