Table Seating: $25 advance, $30 day of show Standing Room: $20 advance, $25 day of show
Critically acclaimed pianist TAKA KIGAWA will present a solo piano recital at (le) Poisson Rouge on August 26, 2019, at 7:00 pm. Doors open at 6:00 pm. Mr. Kigawa will perform Ludwig van Beethoven’s last five sonatas: Sonata No. 28 in A major, Op. 101; Sonata No. 29 in B-flat major, Op. 106 “Hammerklavier”; Sonata No. 30 in E major, Op. 109; Sonata No. 31 in A-flat major, Op. 110; and Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111.
This event will offer a rare opportunity to hear Beethoven’s last five piano sonatas in a single recital.
Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas are part of Taka Kigawa’s staple repertoire. He has performed them many times throughout the world. Of his performance of Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111, Barry Cohen of the New Music Connoisseur wrote, “In Kigawa’s rendering, the first movement, with its strong three-note motto, subsequently borrowed by the likes of Schubert and Mahler, sounded here like a pronouncement of great import which leads to an emotionally heated discussion finally resolved in sensibility and reason. And Kigawa took the second movement (actually several movements in one) crisply and saw it as far, far removed from the first. The dancing phrases were there and even that delightfully syncopated passage which seems to foretell the age of jazz.”
