Rika Zayasu Piano Recital

Pianist Rika Zayasu plays Schubert, Chopin, and Scriabin


Japanese-born pianist Rika Zayasu has performed to critical acclaim throughout Europe, America, and Japan. She is the founder and artistic director of Tudeley Festival of Chamber Music and Voice, held on the first weekend of July every year in Tudeley, Kent.

She has exclusively recorded for Claudio Records, its unique Q-Lab lifelike sound is praised both nationally and internationally and her Debussy album was received with immediate acclaim by the British press including several five-star plus reviews.

Next season will include a tour in the United States and Canada (Beethoven piano concertos), a series of chamber music concerts in France, Italy, Austria and Japan and a world premiere performance of British composer Christian Mason's new work at St John's Smith Square, London.

Having spent her formative years in France, Rika Zayasu studied under Michel Béroff and Denis Pascal in Paris before moving to London to work with Maria Curcio, the legendary pupil of Artur Schnabel. She also obtained a Postgraduate Diploma and a Masters Degree from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama under the supervision of Prof. Joan Havill.

'...an emotional and dramatic work that left concertgoers stunned by the explosion of sound. Zayasu's grace and power was recognized and rewarded as the audience gave a standing ovation that brought her out no less than three times.'
