Asia House and Cambridge Early Music are delighted to present:
An Evening with Kay Ueyama

The evening will mark the UK premier performance of prize-winning harpsichordist Kay Ueyama and will consist of works by classical and Japanese composers.
The two Japanese pieces that Kay will perform are by Kozaburo Y. Hirai (1910-2002) and Kiyoshi Nobitoki (1887-1965), the latter of which is based on an old Tohoku popular folk song. These works have never been played in the UK before. Kay Ueyama will also play her own arrangement of the most famous of Japanese traditional songs, Sakura (Cherry Blossom).

A drinks reception will follow the performance.
