ABOUT ME

 
 
 

Takao Rokugawa was born in the ancestral
home of a samurai family, in Nagano, Japan.

He began his training as a pianist with Jin-ichiro Ando.
He continued his studies with Edith Fischer, the most
important disciple of world acclaimed pianist Claudio
Arrau, perpetuating the tradition of this great master.

Wrapped in a typical warm sound, the intense blend
and organic musicality of his interpretation tend to a
mystical touch, instilled by his spiritual immersion in
the very heart of Zen philosophy.

Takao Rokugawa is regularly invited to perform in
concerts and recitals around Japan and in European
countries : Spain, Switzerland, Germany and England.

“Takao Rokugawa is an exceptional musician.
He has a colorful and beautiful sonority adapted to different styles.
His deep understanding of the musical structures allows him to interpret
with conviction and intelligence the repertory of his choice.
I had the pleasure to have him as a student for several years and I think
he will bring further the tradition of my master, Claudio Arrau’s teaching.
I wish him all the success his qualities deserve and hope the world of music
will enjoy his active participation.”
