Taka Kigawa
"Phenomenon... There's no denying he's something special." - The New York Times

"Kigawa’s playing was impressive – it had to be – but as extraordinary as it was to watch his fingers dance across the rapid, complex passages, the delicacy of his playing was even more striking."

Recital: Boulez Second Piano Sonata

Brooklyn NY USA
Featured Video
Taka Kigawa performs Franz Liszt's Sonata in B minor. The Shelter Island Reporter described his performance as "Mr. Kigawa brought real expressive depth to this massive -- nearly 40 minutes -- work. Written in four uninterrupted movements, the interior drama of the work was so vividly developed that while Mr. Kigawa looked cool and unruffled at the end, the audience was left breathless. Musicians and musicologists have argued for over 160 years about the significance of, and the symbolism in this work. But with a performance as stirring as Mr. Kigawa's, the sonata's reputation as Liszt's greatest work is assured."
