About KIAZMA Piano Duo
KIAZMA Piano Duo highlights the brilliant musical synergy of pianists Aura Go and Tomoe Kawabata. Equally at home in two-piano and four-hand repertoire from the Baroque to the present day, KIAZMA exemplifies the intimacy, intricacy and dynamism that make the piano duo such a unique artform.
About the concert
After Chopin’s death, most of his possessions went to his family in Warsaw, including numerous unpublished musical manuscripts. Chopin’s sister Ludwika dutifully catalogued them, including the first bars of music from each one. Tragically, in 1863, all the manuscripts were destroyed by a fire. Suddenly Ludwika’s catalogue of incipits was all that remained of these priceless works. Celebrated Uzbek composer Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky has taken the surviving fragments and fashioned them into an intriguing new work, turning six lost Chopin waltzes into a precious new dance.
