Pianist Mami Shikimori plays some rarely heard Tchaikovsky repertoire from her latest Naxos CD, as well as Chopin's masterworks.

It is surprising how little of Tchaikovsky's solo piano pieces are known to the general public but he wrote a lot of miniature piano pieces full of character and charm with stirring melodies, often influenced by Russian folk tunes.

The first piece of Op.2 Suite, Ruines d'un chateau (Ruins of a Castle), is an evocative piece which opens mysteriously and leads to a lively section with the sounds of trumpets recalling the battles fought. After a mischievous Scherzo comes a heartfelt Song Without Words which was Tchaikovsky's earliest hit tune.

Valse-Caprice, Op.4 starts off as an innocent waltz but builds up to a crazy virtuosic climax towards the end.

Mami Shikimori has performed in world renowned concert halls including New York's Carnegie Weill Hall, London's Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, Cadogan Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Tokyo's Suntory Hall.

Her latest album "Tchaikovsky Piano Music" is currently receiving critical acclaim in the UK, Japan, France, Spain and the USA. Her recording was recently featured in the Canadian radio programme "Women in music" on the Grand 101 and broadcast on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3.
