Numerous prizes at renowned competitions e.g. first prizes at the “Concours Clara Haskil” in Vevey, the “A. Casagrande International Piano Competition” in Terni, the “G.B. Viotti International Music Competition” in Vercelli laid the foundation for Hisako Kawamura’s international concert carrier. On the occasion of the Schumann anniversary audite presents her impressive debut recording as a redesigned digipack with new cover picture. Hisako Kawamura presents two main works of the piano repertoire which could not be more different: Franz Schubert’s Sonata in A major which illustrates the conflict between emotional passion and contemplative inwardness, and Robert Schumann’s „Faschingsschwank aus Wien“ which disrupts the typical sonata form with carnivalesque irony.
