Budapest Spring Festival 2019 - The most successful competitor of the Franz Liszt Seminar, Sapporo

Young Japanese pianist Ruka Yokoyama has taken the masterclasses of such world-famous pianists as Eliso Virsaladze, Dina Yoffe, Jacques Rouvier, and Michel Béroff. In 2018, he performed Beethoven’s Piano Concerto in G major with the Sapporo Symphony Orchestra. His evening at the Budapest Spring Festival will also bear evidence to his affinity towards the music of Beethoven, two of whose challenging compositions he will perform in the first part of the concert.

Ruka Yokoyama will also play a piece by a young contemporary Japanese composer. Following studies in engineering and music, Mizuki I has received the scholarship of the Aoyama Foundation since 2016, and is a member of Group NEXT, a composers’ collective.
