Tomoe Kawabata

Piano Recital

PART OF WOOD, METAL AND VIBRATING AIR: A PIANO RECITAL SERIES.

Since moving to Australia in 2002, Tomoe Kawabata, an internationally sought-after recitalist, concert and chamber musician, has been doing Australian audiences a great service by increasing their familiarity with Japanese composers. In this fascinating program she explores the art of Akio Yashiro and Akiro Miyoshi (both of whom studied at the Paris Conservatoire during the 1950s) and their links to Ravel, Debussy and Dutilleux. Here is your first chance to hear a beautiful Arvo Pärt-like piece, Mirror of Stars, by one of Japan’s greatest living composers, Akira Nishimura.

‘Pianist Tomoe Kawabata has become a leading figure in the performance of contemporary Japanese music, through her extensive international performances and research.’
