|Yoriko Wakabayashi Piano Recital|
Saturday 2nd February 7:30pm at St Mary's Church, W5
Yoriko Wakabayashi - pianist
This is a recital not to be missed... Yoriko Wakabayashi’s recital programme includes some of the most demanding and influential piano repertoire ever written: rarely performed as a complete set, the four Chopin Ballades.
Yoriko Wakabayashi was born in Tokyo and has been based in London, living in Ealing, for over 20 years. She studied at The Royal Academy of Music winning numerous prizes including the MacFarren Medal, the Academy’s highest performance award, which subsequently led to her London recital debut at The Southbank Centre.
A regular recitalist throughout the UK, Yoriko’s engagements have also taken her abroad, notably to Japan and Malaysia. She has broadcast on Classic FM and recorded for the Oxford Classics label. Yoriko has also appeared in recital with her husband, pianist Graham Caskie, in their piano duo. For this recital Yoriko will play a concert Fazioli, specially brought in for this occasion. This promises to be a special and memorable occasion.
