Motueka is hosting a concert by Yuka Eguchi on the Violin accompanied by the multi talented Dr Kemp English on the piano.  This concert will bring together two top instrumental performers to form a new duo with a varied programme which is sure to please with their repertoire designed to ‘thrill, chill and charm’. 

Yuka is one of Japan’s foremost concertmasters, having lead both the Japan Philharmonic and the Tokyo Mozart Players.  She is also a solo and chamber musician.  She took up the role of Assistant Concertmaster of the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra in 2015.  A child prodigy, Yuka began playing at aged three years and, by age eight, was touring the world. 


Kemp also has many degrees and honours gained in the fortepiano, harpsichord, organ as well as the piano.  He is one of New Zealand’s leading concert and recording performers as well as actively involved in teaching.  He travels the world playing a variety of styles and periods from Classical Baroque to the 21st Century composers.  Kemp has performed several times for Motueka audiences playing the organ as well as piano. 


The collaboration between such individually talented musicians promises to be a real treat with the programme containing many favourites.
