Aimi Kobayashi - a musical portrait of one of the most interesting participants in the 17th Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competition.

The 20-year-old Japanese pianist, enjoying great audience approval, was among the favorites already from the first round; according to well-known British critic John Allison, ‘her taking part in the final and winning an honorable mention was one of the most predictable elements of the entire Competition'. Already as a 13-year-old pianist, Aimi was revealed to the Polish audience by The Fryderyk Chopin Institute when she performed Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto in D minor with the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century at the Chopin and His Europe festival. Her Competition disc includes, among other works, the Sonata in B-flat minor op. 35 and the Scherzo in B minor op. 20.

The Blue Series is an exceptional cycle of recordings that has been realized by The Fryderyk Chopin Institute since 2010, and presents the most interesting personalities from the Fryderyk Chopin International Piano Competitions in Warsaw. The laureates of the 17th Chopin Competition represent a special attraction of the series.
