Akiko Suwanai, a tall, imposing violinist of striking stage presence, raised her bow for a sombre, intense descent of notes at the start: this was big-boned, noble playing, with its rhythmic life taut and rigorous.”
The Times

Japanese violinist Akiko Suwanai returns to our Festival! After winning the International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1990, Akiko Suwanai has become one of the most sought-after artists among renowned conductors and orchestras. Suwanai is joined by her former teacher at Juilliard, our very own Artistic Director Cho-Liang Lin, together with our other festival musicians, for a night showcasing her virtuosity.
