Izumi Kimura - Brilliant Corners Jazz Festival

Izumi Kimura - Brilliant Corners Jazz Festival

Sunday, 3 March 2019, 2.45pm

Exploring the cracks between composed and improvised music, Izumi Kimura is one of the most interesting contemporary pianists working today.

Born in Yokohama, Japan Izumi moved to Ireland in 1995 studying with Ray Keary at the Royal Irish Academy of Music before performing extensively throughout the country and abroad as a solo, orchestral and chamber musician. Though classically trained, Kimura has spent much of her time in Ireland exploring jazz music, working with many of Ireland’s leading jazz musicians. Her heroic levels of technical fearlessness, stamina and strength make for a breathing, slow-burn performance.

“Her easy authority made each piece seem to come across as it should – persuasively” Irish Times

“Meditative, subtly provocative, impressionistic and consistently alluring” All About Jazz


'Gaspard de la nuit' by Maurice Ravel, performed by Izumi Kimura
