Written especially for Yuki in 2019, the piece, which comes from a set of five entitled Simply Driven (published by Schott Music), has since been performed in several concerts worldwide.
‘Enigma, a pianistically ingenuous title selection by noted educator, writer and pianist Melanie Spanswick, receives an ideal premiere performance on this CD, and clearly suits Negishi’s strengths.’ – Gramophone
