This fresh and inspiring Anglo-Japanese collaboration between two internationally renowned artists: violinist Madeleine Mitchell and pianist Noriko Ogawa will perform at UK festivals 2010 and 2011 and 2 intimate preview concerts this weekend in West Wales. 


They intend to develop a new concept of the genre and to enhance their repertoire with related visual arts across borders. For example, Debussy expert Richard Langham Smith will give pre-concert talks exploring the Debussy-Takemitsu relationship in particular.
