Bravo Niagara! Festival of the Arts and the Japanese Canadian Cultural Centre proudly present the Ontario debut of internationally-acclaimed pianist Kyohei Sorita
One of the most sought-after pianists of his generation, Kyohei Sorita is the winner of the Silver Medal at the prestigious 18th International Chopin Piano Competition (2021) in Warsaw. This is the highest prize for a Japanese-born pianist since Mitsuko Uchida’s second prize in 1970. In the coming season, invitations will take Mr. Sorita to the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra (originally under Gergiev, now under Payare), to Poland, Australia, and Austria (Tonkünstler Orchestra) and on a tour with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra under Alan Gilbert.
In 2020 he gave his debuts in Paris and at the Vienna Musikverein to much acclaim. His orchestra collaborations include Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, RAI National Symphony Orchestra, Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, Warsaw National Philharmonic Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, Tonkünstler-Orchester, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Yomiuri Japan Symphony Orchestra, and Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.
Mr. Sorita is also the founder, producer, and conductor of the Japan National Orchestra.
