Japan 2018

In August 2018, I will be back in Japan for duo recitals with Emmanuel Christien (piano) for a rich demanding programme with Mozart E minor Sonata, Beethoven no7 sonata, Saint Saens violin sonata no1, and Ravel Tzigane. We will also be recording in Tokyo a violin encore pieces CD with many miniatures. We are both very much looking forward as our last japanese duo recitals were in May 2016! We hope to see our loyal Japanese fans as well as new faces at our concerts!!
