One of Japan’s leading pianists, Yu Kosuge, performs at Kelso Old Parish Church on Friday, April 7.

There are many great pianists outside the UK who rarely, if ever, appear this side of the water. Yu Kosuge is a prime example.

Now living in Munich she appears at the most important venues and festivals in the world, both as a recitalist and alongside the world’s greatest conductors such as Seiji Ozawa, Philippe Herreweghe, Sakari Oramo, Lawrence Foster and Charles Dutoit.

Her Carnegie Hall debut recital met with outstanding success with critics praising her “acutely poetic sensibility...wit, drama, and effulgent lyricism.”

She is renowned for her superlative technique, sensitivity of touch and profound understanding of the music she plays.

The programme will include Beethoven Sonata 21 and two pieces by Liszt.

Performance starts at 7.30pm. Tickets £12 from www.kelsomusicsociety.com.
