2017 Tour in Centre-Val de Loire region (France)

Virtuosity, from the Baroque to the 21st Century

Virtus – “value” and “bravery” – is the Latin origin of virtuosity. But what does it mean to be a virtuoso pianist?

Every artist, every pianist confronts one day about virtuosity, a theme of course related to the technical agility of the instrumentalist but also requires us to reflect on the importance of expressiveness.

Takuya Otaki, First Prize of the 12th International Piano Competition of Orleans, will propose concerts around this theme as well as master-classes to the pianists of tomorrow: the students of the conservatories who will have the opportunity, through a crucial theme, to meet this young talent already laureate of a great piano competition.
