Jun Kanno, an internationally acclaimed Japanese pianist, celebrating the 65th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Japan and Pakistan wows Karachi.
Speaking to the audience, Kanno expressed his delight at being able to collaborate with Pakistani musicians at Napa. Along with Ustad Nafees Ahmed on the sitar, Kanno was part of a jugalbandi on Mozart’s self-titled rondo ‘Alla turca’ — a thrilling experience.
Kanno had the audience mesmerized each time he played the piano. He made the effort to build a story and provide the audience with a glimpse of the world he belongs to.
Kanno’s impressive experience and depth is recognized the world over. He has played with several orchestras, including in Munich, Berlin, Prague and even with the Korean National Orchestra.
