Pianist Misuzu Tanaka performs for Aptos Keyboard Series

May 6, 2019

“A tremendously moving performance of Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2 in D Minor, Op. 14. She kept us enthralled throughout the lyricism of the first and third movements, and then blew us away with her masterful playing of the Scherzo and final Vivace. This is the way Prokofiev should be played. “ - Lyn Bronson- Peninsula Reviews - READ FULL REVIEW >


Live in concert, Misuzu Tanaka performs music by two composers she holds closely to her heart: J. S. Bach and Janáček. Structural perfection and the display of raw uninhibited emotions from the two masters create an unexpected yet perfect pairing. Album Page >>

The young duo of Maksim Shtrykov, a clarinetist from Belarus, and Misuzu Tanaka, a pianist from London, are yet another example of a new generation of exquisitely talented performers who elevate our understanding of the world’s music.
