Taka Kigawa will present a solo recital at Greencastle Summer Music Festival (GSMS.) Since 2013, Taka Kigawa has performed at GSMS every summer, and this concert will mark his fifth appearance. In this concert, he will perform one of the twentieth century piano masterworks - and Taka Kigawa’s specialty - Oliver Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux (Books I and VII.) Also, he will play three solo piano pieces of John Luther Adams, today’s leading American composer and the 2014 Pulitzer Prize awardee, with whom Taka Kigawa has worked. In addition, he will perform Harrison Birtwistle’s Lied for cello and piano, with Eric Edberg, the founder and artistic director of GSMS.
