Satsuki Hoshino – Piano improvisation on Jean Paul Riopelle’s artwork
The Maeght Foundation is pleased to present an extraordinary musical experience with pianist Satsuki Hoshino during an evening of piano improvisation in front of a work by Jean Paul Riopelle.
Satsuki Hoshino started playing music at a very young age and at the age of 8, she performed Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 in Tokyo. Having early realized that she belonged to the rare group of people with synesthesia, where sounds spontaneously generate visual images, colors, or shapes in her brain, Satsuki Hoshino decided to train in France to work on piano improvisation.
“What attracts me to improvisation is its transience and fragility. Improvisation is a kind of music that has not been heard before and will never be heard again.” Satsuki Hoshino.
