I’m just getting ready to fly to Santa Fe in Argentina tomorrow. I will be performing Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 with the Orquesta Sinf√≥nica Provincial under conductor Walter Hilgers. I have never visited Argentina before so I am really looking forward to it, it’s going to be a great experience!

The orchestra have a great reputation and Maestro Hilgers is a world class conductor so I know this wil be a very special event.

 

I have just got back from Yokohama in Japan where I performed a recital at Minato Mirai Hall. It was my first time in Japan and I really enjoyed it! I was lucky enough to be able to spend some time in Tokyo before the concert so I explored a small part of this amazing city, ate some great food and figured out just how to use the Tokyo Metro…

I was invited to perform in Yokohama by Osamu Hirose of the Yokohama Arts Foundation and for the recital I performed pieces by Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Chopin and Bach. The audience at the performance were wonderful and I received a lot of flowers and gifts, so a huge thank you for that. You made me feel very welcome in Japan!

Thank you also to the organisers for all your hard work. You made this a great experience for me! I hope to return again soon.

I have been working on a new video. We filmed it last week at a wonderful old building with some great architecture. It always takes a log time to get everything just right on a video, but its really worth it when you see the finished result.

Here is a raw clip from the shoot, I hope we can release the final version very soon.

Last week I travelled to Munich to film a short intervew which will be used to promote a project which I m working on with The Argo Ensemble in Germany. Argo are conducted by Ektoras Tartanis and are a groundbreaking orchestra, combining performance and classical music in many of their varied projects.

It is great working with Ektoras and I can’t wait until we can perform the final work together!
