Yoshikawa, Takahiro

Takahiro Yoshikawa, a Japanese pianist who has settled in Milan, presents this new release, which is a double date with Mozart. The concert took place in November 2019 at La Scala alongside the ballet Petite Mort by choreographer Jiri Kylian, which was written in honor of the bicentenary of Mozart’s death. After highly acclaimed romantic and modern recordings dedicated to composers like Beethoven and Liszt, this is Yoshikawa’s first recording dedicated to Mozart. Alan Becker of American Record Guide wrote of this album: “I’m impressed. This Japanese artist storms through the music as if a born Lisztian. There is an abandon here that keeps you on the edge of your seat—and a larger-than-life technique to wow you with his digital gifts. Still, he is also attuned to moments of reflection, and there is nothing shallow about his interpretations…”
