Afternoon Concert
Chie Hirai (Fortepiano)

Walter, Érard, Steinway

December 13 (Thu.), 2018


One of the premier fortepianists of Japan, Chie Hirai (b. 1975) makes her first appearance at Art Tower Mito this December. She will perform on three different pianos, all of which will be lined up on stage: an 18c fortepiano made by the Viennese Anton Walter, a 19c Erard piano from France, and a modern 20c Steinway piano. The program she has planned will include classic works from each of those eras, allowing the audience to enjoy the respective timbres of the three instruments.
