Xenia Pestova plays Soberado, Cambridge, UK
Currently the Director of Performance at the University of Nottingham, Xenia Pestova’s performances and recordings have earned her a reputation as a leading interpreter of uncompromising repertoire of her generation.

Mysterious, dark or playful in turn, each piece offers a glimpse of a different world and teaches us that the music of the present is inseparable from the music of the past.
