Young Russian pianist performs in Okinawa

Date Posted: 1999-03-14

A piano recital by a young Russian pianist Nikolai Tokarev is scheduled to be held at Okinawa Convention Center, March 30.

Tokarev, only 15-year young but already internationally acclaimed will give his first performance to the Okinawan audience. He has done several recitals in mainland Japan in Tokyo, Osaka and Nagoya in 1997 and 1998, all to rave reviews and enthusiastic audiences.

Tokarev was born in 1983. He was introduced to music at very young age by his parents and grandparents who all are musicians. When he was 10 years old, he won a scholarship from the New Name Fund, which supports gifted musicians in order to cultivate their talents. In 1995, he debuted as a solo pianist in a piano recital in Moscow, where many professionals and music critics praised his performance.

He insists on playing traditional Russian-style piano music. He says that he wants to make the audience to feel the Russian cultural spirit through the melody he plays. He describes that he always thinks how he can reach to the spirits of the composers of the pieces because he wants the audience to feel the spirit of the music through him.
