German ‘soprano’ mesmerises audience


October 23, 2015

Two young artistes, Luc Ket, a soprano, and Yukiko Tidten, a pianist, mesmerised the audience with their outstanding skills, at a classical music concert, titled 'Songs of Yearning', organised by the German Deputy Head of Mission Peter Felton at the embassy.
They performed around 14 songs, mostly composed by 19th century artists, including legendry W.A. Mozart, Gabriel Fauré, and Robert Schumann. The audience were diplomats, journalists and others.
The concert included mainly classical opera pieces in German, English, French, and Spanish, and entertained everyone. Live performances by Luc Ket and Tidten enthralled everyone.
Japanese-born pianist Yukiko Tidten-Yoshikawa has won numerous musical awards. She studied music from top music institutions in both Japan and France. She has also worked as a successful pianist and piano teacher in several European and Asian countries.
She skilfully plays the piano, riding the waves of the tempo set by Luc Ket. As the opera singer brought out the agony, grief or joy in her song, she was accompanied by Tidten's fluid movements on the piano.
Luc Ket is a celebrated classical singer and has had frequent tours to Europe, the US and Australia.
Luc Ket said "I am here in Pakistan for the first time. But today's performance has made me feel as if I am in my own country. She started her singing career as soprano at the age of seven with the Nederland's Opera House, she said.
The audience said that despite being an Asian, they truly enjoyed the performance and opera songs that were mostly in European languages. They said music has the power to bridge between language and cultures to countries and continents, music can bring people together.
On the occasion, Peter Felton told the audience that the embassy to organise three more concerts until Christmas. He said the embassy would keep on arranging such event to provide music lovers with good music.
