Performed by Mami Shikimori (piano)
Noted for her expressive power and poetic insight, combined with effortless technical ability, Japanese pianist Mami Shikimori has been exciting audiences since first appearing on stage in 1996.
Her playing has been described as ‘electrifying’ and ‘a dazzling revelation’ by the critics and she has performed at venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall, Weill Recital Hall, London’s St John’s Smith Square and Queen Elizabeth Hall. She also gave a highly-acclaimed solo recital at Tokyo’s Suntory Hall.
This recording ends with Ravel’s fiendishly difficult “La Valse”, a transcription by the composer himself.
