Outside Osaka – Minoo – beautiful!

Sometimes my best concerts happen when I don’t expect it at all. Yesterday night at Minoo, Maple-Hall, outside of Osaka, almost in the countryside, fresh air, green mountains and a very nice concert hall…
Together with brilliant pianist Ryoko SAWAKI we were able to create a breathtaking atmosphere from Schubert “Arpeggione”, via Enescu and Taffanel to Franck “Sonata”. And the great supportive audience accompanied us on our exciting journey through this romantic music, in the best sense of the word.

A marvellous concert evening took place not in Carnegie, or Suntory, or Musikverein-Hall: it happened in the countryside outside Osaka, and we LOVED it!
