Recognized with the 51th Suntory Music Award

I am extremely honored and happy to receive the 51st Suntory Music Award and thank the jury for their decision, the audience, friends and my family. This is actually the award for all friends who have supported me for a long time, who have inspired me with their opinions and musical work, and who work a lot and so hard for and around me. Thank you and congratulations to these lovely people !!
Every year, the Suntory Foundation of the Arts presents the Suntory Music Award to a person or organization that has contributed to the development of western classical and contemporary music in Japan with its outstanding musical and artistic achievement.

CD Shop Award received!

This time, we won the "12th CD Shop Awards 2020" in the category "Classical" !
The CD Shop Award is an annual award selected only by the votes of CD shop clerks nationwide.
I am honored to receive such a prestigious award. A CD is something that can never be created alone, even if there is only one performer. Congratulations to the members of the recording team who worked behind the scenes and skillfully accomplished the process of producing this CD (b-sharp Philipp Nedel, Michael Bramann, piano engineer Gerd Finkenstein, Ryusuke Kozawa of Sony Music).
And I would like to express my gratitude to the CD shops who always sell CDs in the stores and at the performance venues, and to my family who always provide accurate and warm support.
