Other than solo piano performance, Kaihara is actively working on chamber music, especially with string instruments.
Baroque to contemporary.
At the moment I am particularly fond of Mozart, Chopin, Schumann, Ravel, Rachmaninoff. I am also actively working on chamber music, which is my favorite, from piano trios to quintets and pieces with string instruments.
