I was immensely honored and pleased to be the Special Guest of the Ambassador of Japan in Mauritius , H.E KAWAGUCHI Shuichiro at the WORLD PREMIERE PIANO RECITAL, HAIKU ON MAURITIUS (2022) inspired by Pink Moon by Anita Bacha by World Acclaimed Japanese Pianist and Composer, HIRAI MOTOKI at the Caudan Arts Centre,Mauritius on 31 August 2022.
I was also overwhelmed with joy that HIRAI MOTOKI drew his inspiration to compose the fabulous piece HAIKU ON MAURITIUS from my book PINK MOON-AN ANTHOLOGY OF HAIKU POEMS (2022) self published by Amazon.
Acclaimed worldwide for his imagination and sensitivity, London based Japanese composer/artist, HIRAI MOTOKI ,has appeared in over 100 countries across the globe, performing in prestigious venues including New York’s Carnegie Hall,Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw, Vienna’s Konzerthaus and London’s Wigmore Hall.
The Guardian – Hirai Motoki “a most brilliant and sensitive musical talent.”
The Piano Concert was a great success and included two Mauritius Premiere and exclusive solo recitals of J.SBach: Ardante Maestoso ,Mozart:Adagio. Schubert:By the Sea ,Schumann :Taumerel. Albéniz:Tango. Liszt:Maiden’s Wish,Chopin:Nocturne and Grieg: Wedding Day at Troidhaugen by Maestro Hirai Motoki
A memorable evening packed with mind blowing emotions for the audience and for me.
