Hailed by international press as a pianist “who dispatched everything with both dizzying speed and sensitivity” Today’s Zaman (Turkey) and for her “exceptionally high technical level”General-Anzeiger Bonn (Germany), Misuzu Tanaka has established herself as an artist of remarkable individuality with a rare combination of poetic sensitivity and breathtaking virtuosity.

She has performed in prestigious concert venues throughout the world, from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig and Mozart’s Museum at Villa Bertramka in Prague to Alice Tully Hall in New York. Misuzu Tanaka is a respected regular performer for Music from the Frederick Collection, a leading North-American venue for performance on historical instruments. Enjoying an active solo career in the U.S., she is among the country’s brightest emerging stars.

Joining Misuzu on October 13th is Maksim Shtrykov, an acclaimed clarinetist from Belarus. Recently hailed for “clarity that’s viscerally breathtaking” and “effortless…quicksilver legato” (Lucid Culture), Maksim continues to win over audiences with his profound musical sensibility and flawless technique.
St. Paul’s is pleased to present this dynamic duo in our Concert Series. Located in downtown Walnut Creek, the St. Paul’s Concert Series offers monthly world-class performances to the local community for an affordable, donation-based cost. Free parking is provided.
