Preserved on YouTube, pianist Laetitia Hahn was profiled on television, replying to the prompting of the interviewer with charm, wit, and intelligence. She then was led to the grand piano where she sat to confidently ripple off an absolutely stunning Mendelssohn scherzo. Eight years old at the time, her performance was that of a seasoned concert artist. Now 15, Laetitia and her younger brother Phillip, aged nine, have garnered enthusiastic plaudits from concert performances in a dozen European nations. They have captured the attention of maestro Robert Ryker, who will conduct the Tokyo Sinfonia for their Asian debut on April 17 in Oji Hall, Ginza.

The piano prodigies will perform:
  • Concerto for Piano & Orchestra in A Minor, Op. 54 (Schumann), Laetitia Hahn, piano solo
  • Concerto for Piano & Orchestra No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 19 (Beethoven), Philip Hahn, piano solo
  • Concerto for Piano & Orchestra No. 3 in C Minor, Op. 37 (Beethoven), Laetitia Hahn, piano solo
