Our concert organiser writes: Aisa came to the Club 7 years ago, staying with me for a couple of nights before travelling on to Dolgellau Music Club. I found out a great deal about her such as her early interest in serious athletics and ice skating alongside music. Her choice of concentrating on piano was made early and she travelled to Europe to continue her studies at age 14. Since then she has been busy and in particular her work has involved the establishing of summer festivals in Japan and Italy. Most recently she has set up an internet programme featuring interviews with artists and first transmission was on 6 December. Her programme takes us to the heart of the Romantic repertoire. Two pieces come from Liszt’s Années de pèlerinage, Switzerland and Italy with a further border crossing into Austria for Carnival scenes from Vienna. We are grateful to Steinway for making available their Steinway Hall in London for recording this concert.
