Aimi Kobayashi
15-year-old pianist Aimi Kobayashi (小林愛実) is making her acting debut in a film called “Sleep (Nemuri Yusurika) by director Katsumi Sakaguchi. The film is scheduled to open in Japan this November, but it will first be screened at the International Film Festival Rotterdam that is currently running from January 26 to February 6.

The movie is being shown in the festival’s Spectrum section.
Kobayashi, who plays the difficult role of the young daughter Natsume, was chosen for the part by Sakaguchi because it required a piano performance scene.

Kobayashi is a classical pianist born on September 23, 1995. As a pianist, she became the youngest winner of the International Chopin Piano Competition in Asia in 2004, when she was 9 years old. She has performed with various orchestras, and last year she released her debut album under EMI Music’s classical division. This April, she will hold a recital at the famous Carnegie Hall in New York, under the direction of conductor Seiji Ozawa.
