Programme Note

Pianist Samson Tsoy’s playing has been described as “the most promising” by BBC Music Magazine. In 2012, he was recognised as a Laureate of the Santander International Piano Competition and attracted the attention of legendary pianist Elisabeth Leonskaja.  Also his performances have been praised by the highly acclaimed Russian composer, Rodion Shchedrin and famed violinist Ivry Gitlis. He has been recognised at more than 20 international piano competitions.

The Hattori Foundation is a charitable trust offering awards to exceptionally talented young instrumental soloists or chamber ensembles whose talent and achievements give promise of an international career. 

The Hattori Foundation Rush Hour Recitals are now in their 8th season. In each year alumni and current award winners are presented in a series of intimate recitals at our home, the 1901 Arts Club. Tickets include a pre-concert drink, the recital (approx 1 hour), and an opportunity to join and meet the musicians in the bar after the performance for light refreshments.
