Friday 22 June - Piano Recital by Noriko Ogawa - St Mary's Church

Noriko Ogawa, professor of piano at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama, appears with all the major European, Japanese and US orchestras.

The first half of Noriko’s programme was devoted to Debussy as a tribute to the one hundredth anniversary of his death in March 1918. Noriko also played two pieces by Japanese composers before finishing with Chopin’s famous Funeral March Sonata.
