PLATFORM CONCERTS 27 SEPT 2010 - 31 AUG 2017
THE PLATFORM CONCERT No. 12


The series had its first concert in 2010 to serve as a platform to introduce Japanese musicians to the London audience (focusing on the winners of the All JAPAN Competitions and international competition to showcase the calibre of young Japanese musicians). This is the final concert of this series.

"It's more than two" Series will make a take-off from next Season and this concert will also give a glimpse of the wonderful world of duo and four hands with "Japan's most prominent Four Hands".

The Platform Series have introduced 12 Japanese musicians in London from 2010. Sadly, the time has come to say good bye to our PLATFORM Concert and we want to say THANK YOU with a superb piano duo.
