Recital at Tokyo Opera City / Chopin

“If I were a pianist, and if I faced this great talent, I would have to despair in myself…

Kozhukhin’s left hand especially displays noteworthy strength. Basic arpeggios were established precisely, allowing the right hand freedom for nuance and sensitivity. For example, in the beginning of the second Sonata, I was surprised that only the left hand resonated at first, but from thereon the melodic line and inner voice appeared little by little. It was vivid and reminded me of a 3D effect.

There were also many of unforgettable moments in Preludes, for example, the beauty of the long trill in the left hand in No. 9, the heavenly pianissimo in No. 15, and the jazz-like improvisation in No. 16 and 24…

The encores were by Bach and Schubert. After two hours of flamboyant music, the subtle charm of these encores was breathtaking.”
