With her superlative technique, sensitivity of touch and profound understanding of the music she plays, Yu Kosuge has become one of the world’s most noted young pianists. Her Carnegie Hall debut recital met with outstanding success with critics praising her “acutely poetic sensibility, wit, drama and effulgent lyricism.”
Yu Kosuge has worked with many of the leading European orchestras and conductors around the world.
Her first disc featuring the Chopin Études was accorded a five-star rating by Fono Forum Magazine. Yu Kosuge’s other recordings on Sony include Liszt’s 12 Études d´exécution transcendante, Chopin’s Préludes and Nocturnes, Mozart’s Piano Concertos and Live at Carnegie Hall.
