KIAZMA Piano Duo brings together the talents of pianists Tomoe Kawabata and Aura Go.

Equally at home in twopiano and four-hand repertoire from the Baroque to the present day, KIAZMA shares the unique combination of intimacy, intricacy and dynamism that each genre has to offer.

In his ultimate, enigmatic masterpiece, J.S. Bach traverses the full spectrum of contrapuntal possibilities with endlessly astonishing inventiveness. This compelling new take on the Art of Fugue sees pianists Tomoe Kawabata and Aura Go move seamlessly between solo, four-hand and two-piano playing, in an exploration that reveals and highlights Bach’s scope for deep introspection and sublime joy.
