Japanese pianist Junko Kobayashi continues our French theme with the evocatively impressionistic sound-pictures of Debussy's Estampes. Her countryman Takemitsu's music is strongly influenced by French composers like Debussy and Messiaen, so his Les Yeux Clos fits perfectly in this programme, with a 200th anniversary tribute to Frederic Chopin as a fitting climax.
