KIAZMA Piano Duo brings together the talents of pianists Tomoe Kawabata and Aura Go.
Equally at home in two piano 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.
Atop the summit of Schubert’s unparalleled achievements in the four-hand repertoire sits the remarkable Sonata in C ‘Grand Duo’ of 1824. KIAZMA Piano Duo gives audiences a rare opportunity to experience this epic work, one of the most glorious and significant neglected works by a major composer, in concert. The sublime Variations in A-flat on an Original Theme was composed in the same year, and, together with the Grand Duo, mark Schubert’s rediscovery of a sense of “happiness and peace”.
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre & KIAZMA Piano Duo
