Beethoven's Ninth



‘A rare delight.’ The Age

KIAZMA Piano Duo brings together the artistry and spellbinding musical synergy of Aura Go and Tomoe Kawabata. Equally at home in two-piano and four-hand repertoire from the Baroque to the present day, KIAZMA is passionate about sharing the unique combination of intimacy, intricacy and dynamism that each genre has to offer.

Hear another side of a masterwork you love when KIAZMA Piano Duo performs Beethoven’s Symphony No.9, ‘Ode to Joy’, transcribed for two pianos by Franz Liszt. Irrepressibly dramatic, inspirational and uplifting, the Symphony is hailed among the greatest achievements in western music. Be surprised and delighted by this most famous of works as it is reborn through Liszt.
