Pianist Yuki Negishi Programme Beethoven Sonata in G major Op. 14 No.2  Beethoven Sonata in C sharp minor Op.27 No.2 "Moonlight"  Margaret Bonds Troubled Water Rachmaninoff Preludes Op.23 No.4 & 5  Harold Arlen/Keith Jarrett: Over the Rainbow Gershwin: Three Preludes  About Yuki Negishi  Negishi's performance is mesmeric. Here, as everywhere, her innate musicality allows the music to shine."   ~Colin Clarke, International Piano Magazine, Sept 2022     "Is there a more audacious way to commence your solo debut recording than by diving into Nikolai Kapustin's wildly rhapsodic First Piano Sonata? Especially if you've got Yuki Negishi's fast, well-oiled and supremely confident fingers.”  ~Jed Distler, Gramophone, July 2022 Yuki Negishi has established herself as a pianist of rare poetry, passion and virtuosity, equally at home as an adjudicator, educator and researcher, captivating audiences wherever she performs around the world. Yuki has already performed in over 600 concerts in the UK alone, including many of the most important halls and festivals, and regularly performs about 30 concerts a year as recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician (London Mozart Players, London Myriad Ensemble, members of the Philharmonia, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra etc) in countries such as the Netherlands (Concertgebouw), France, Germany, Switzerland (Tonhalle), Italy (Festival di Londra, Blanc European Festival, Artepiano International Festival), Romania, Bangladesh, Japan, China and the USA. She has been broadcast on BBC Radio 3, Scala Radio, Xray FM, ITV, Channel 4, Dutch, Polish, Romanian and French television and radio.  Her CD ‘Enigma”  released through the Quartz label (www.quartzmusic.com) in May 2022 received rave reviews from Gramophone, International Piano Magazine and Record Geijutsu Japan.
