He is an Honorary Member of the International Schumann Society, Dusseldorf, and was awarded the International Schumann Price in 1988 . He holds the highest artistic title in Russia, "National Artist of Russian Federation". Pavel Egorov has toured in the United States, Canada, China, Taiwan, Japan, Republic of Korea, and most of Europe. During his career he has performed in more than 3000 solo, symphonic and chamber concerts and recorded over 40 Cds.

"In Egorov’s play we find strong individuality, independent technique, deep feeling, tremendous energy, rich variety of sounds, confidence, elegance, will and courage, but the main feature is a rare sensuous strain. The pianist does nothing special for obtaining the effect; the music owns him completely…"
