Music aficionados will be pleased to hear that the second of the prestigious Avex Recital Series will be coming to the iconic Wigmore Hall in June and July.
The Avex Recital Series comes from Avex Classics International (ACI), which is bringing talented young Japanese artists to London audiences. It is a great opportunity for them to perform and develop their talents outside of their native country and for the audience to support them. ACI is a division of Japan’s leading entertainment business, Avex.
The first of these three Saturday lunchtime concerts, with the exceptionally talented blind pianist Nobuyuki Tsujii, has unfortunately passed – but there are still two more opportunities for you to listen to some fantastic Japanese musicians. Tickets are only £20, which is good value for listening to some beautiful music at a beautiful location.
Saturday 17th June: Fumiaki Miura
Violinist Fumiaki Miura is the youngest ever winner of the 2009 Joseph Joachim Hannover International Violin Competition, and will be performing alongside pianist Itamar Golan. The programme including works by Dvořák, Stravinsky and Beethoven. Miura performs on a violin by J.B. Guadagnini (1748) on loan from Yellow Angel Foundation.
Saturday 22nd July: Daishin Kashimoto
Violinist Daishin Kashimoto, the First Concertmaster of the Berlin Philharmonic since 2010, will be performing with pianist Alessio Bax, with a programme including works by Mozart, Szymanowski and Grieg. Kashimoto plays on a violin made by Andrea Guarneri, 1674.
