Hiromi Ikei, piano
In order to play Bach on the modern piano, one must develop a personal point of view on a number of issues relating to, for example, the historical and instrumental aspects of performance. It is possible to render the music of J.S. Bach on both the harpsichord and the modern piano in perfectly agreeable ways, provided one cultivates a personal style.
The modern piano has a different range of possibilities in terms of dynamics and tone colour in comparison to the harpsichord. It is my aim to present the harmonic and formal structure of the music with clarity while making full use of the acoustic potential of the piano.
