As a pianist, I am committed to performing music with authenticity and depth. In my preparations for a new piece, I engage in a thorough and analytical process, seeking to understand the context in which it was written, the intended audience, and the composer’s specific instructions as indicated in the score. One aspect of this process that I place particular emphasis on is the original speed and rubato of the piece, as these elements are often overlooked in performances. I strive to present the music as if it were being heard for the first time, even if that means making unconventional interpretive choices.
I have a particular affinity for demanding, virtuosic compositions, as I believe they can hold the audience’s attention through their energetic and expressive nature. Ludwig van Beethoven and Fryderyk Chopin are my favorite composers to study and perform, and I have spent significant time studying their works in depth. In addition to these two composers, I enjoy exploring the works of a wide range of composers, from Johann Sebastian Bach to Oliver Messiaen and beyond, including contemporary authors. I particularly enjoy introducing lesser-known works by composers such as Charles-Valentin Alkan to my audiences.
In addition to solo performances, I also enjoy collaborating with other musicians in various ensemble settings. This includes my role as a pianist in the Piano Trio called Trio Tomodachi, which includes violin and cello, as well as other collaborations with musicians of different instruments and ensemble sizes. I invite you to follow my musical journey and listen to my performances on this site and on my social media platforms.
