Miku Nishimoto-Neubert – Bach/Brahms
Artists: Miku Nishimoto-Neubert
Title: Bach – Brahms
Catalogue No.: SM 195
Johannes Brahms’ piano works can be divided into two periods: The early, largescale piano works alternate between symphonic and song-like conception. Their suitability for the concert hall lies in the highly virtuosic writing, for instance in the Paganini Variations. Then there are the late works, the summation of an individual journey, the unifying of personal will with spiritual potential.
Miku Nishimoto-Neubert has performed widely in Europe, Japan and North America as soloist, chamber-musician and as accompanist, concentrating on the music of Bach, German Romantic composers and the modern classics. There she finds the figurative and formal clarity, which, besides the sensitive qualities of touch, characterise the playing of Miku Nishimoto-Neubert. A critic writing about her recent CD of works by Bach spoke of “a capricious sophistication of the spirit” and “a meditative introspection”. Notwithstanding all her technical proficiency, it is the intensity with which she seeks the inner spirit of the music which marks the uniqueness of her interpretations and makes them memorable experiences.
