Tonight - Monday, Aug. 24 - at 7:30 pm, enjoy a live videostream from Le Poisson Rouge of powerhouse pianist Taka Kigawa performing music of Tristan Murail, Marco Stroppa and Claude Debussy.

Kigawa has performed extensively as a solo recitalist and orchestral soloist at Carnegie Hall, Alice Tully Hall and the Salle Gaveau in Paris. He holds his Master of Music degree from the Julliard School and currently lives in New York City.
