Making an all-too-rare local appearance, this supremely gifted Japanese pianist plays Barbara Monk Feldman's In the Small Time of a Desert Flower—a 27-minute piece heard on a recent CD issued under Feldman's name on the Mode label and characteristic of the rigorous tranquility with which Takahashi has long been associated. Here, though, the pianist offers a provocative pairing with Schubert's sublime Sonata in D (D. 894), the visionary last work published before the composer's premature death.
