Internationally acclaimed pianists Noriko Ogawa and Kathryn Stott headlined at the 2014 Hebden Bridge Piano Festival. They are both at the height of their respective careers and we are privileged to welcome them back to Calderdale to help raise funds for future Piano Festivals with a wonderful recital of two-piano music by Mozart and Rachmaninov, and solo piano works by Brahms, Liszt, Fauré, Debussy and Ravel.
Kathryn Stott is recognised throughout the world as one of Britain’s most versatile and imaginative musicians, and among today’s most engaging pianists. She has appeared on major international concert platforms in recitals and concerto performances and is in great demand for a wide variety of chamber music alliances, playing with some of the world’s leading instrumentalists including a 30-year association with cellist Yo-Yo Ma.
Since achieving her first great success at Leeds International Piano Competition, Noriko Ogawa has worked with leading orchestras and conductors, such as Dutoit, Vänskä, Slatkin and Otaka. She is also renowned as a recitalist and chamber musician, performing regularly with artists such as Evelyn Glennie, Martin Roscoe and Peter Donohoe and of course Kathryn Stott who has been her duetting partner since 2001.
