As mentioned in the report titled “ Report on Megumi Fujita Piano Recital on October 27,2019“ dated 10th February, 2020, the piano recital by Megumi Fujita for Complete 24 Etudes by Frédéric Chopin held in St John’s Smith Square in October, 2019, which had been approved as an Official Event of the Japan-UK Season of Culture 2019-2020, was praised by Mr. Robert Matthew-Walker, editor of “Musical Opinion” Magazine (published since 1877) on page 44 of the Jan-Mar, 2020 Issue number 1522, with the closing, " her fine recording of these very works, on the Intim Musik label [IMCD 123] is thoroughly recommended. One looks forward to hearing this artist again in London soon.”
Such being a result as above, Megumi Fujita will play highly challenging programming for the applied event, which is to play continuously the last two of the 32 piano sonatas composed by Beethoven, and after an interval, sonatas no. 2 and no. 3 by Chopin without a break in-between. Megumi Fujita feels Beethoven’s Sonata No.32 is a continuation of No.31, as is No.2 and No.3 of Chopin’s. Furthermore she felt Chopin may have been influenced by Beethoven’s last great sonata (no.32), when he was composing his Sonata No.2.
The final two great sonatas by both Chopin and Beethoven performed side by side will be brought to life directly from written music by Megumi Fujita.
