Emiko Miura

Born in Tokyo, Japan, Emiko Miura began playing the piano at the age of three. In 2007, she came to London with an entrance scholarship to the Royal Academy of Music, where she studied solo piano with Kathryn Stott and Ian Fountain, chamber music with Michael Dussek and Harpsichord with Virginia Black. She obtained the Frederic Jackson Award in her second year and graduated as Master of Arts in 2009.

Before coming to London, she graduated at Tokyo College of Music with distinction, where she studied classical piano and jazz piano. During her studies at Tokyo College of Music, she also went to Hungary to study at Liszt Ferenc Academy, Budapest as post graduate student with Balanyay Laszlo and Géza Németh (The Bartok Quartet) for a year.

Emiko has won many prizes in competitions, including the Janet Duff Prize (Best performance of Contemporary Music) from the Royal Academy of Music, first prize in the Japan International League of Arts Competition, and first prize at American Protégé Music Competition. She has worked in masterclasses with many acclaimed musicians including Boris Berman, Christopher Elton, Simon Mulligan, Rolf Hind and Kemal Gekic.

In her music career, she has performed as a soloist in many venues in UK, Japan, Hungary, France and New York as a soloist including the Carnegie Hall, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Suntory Hall, Ferenc Liszt Memorial Musium and Bristol Cathedral.

She has collaborated with many musicians and several world premières with composers, such as Alexander Campkin in the Leeds Lieder Music Festival and Go Hashimoto at the premier concert “Point of View” by composers of Toho Gakuen school of Music. She is also inspired by collaborations with artists in other fields, such as performaing in exhibitions with painters. As well as classical performance, Emiko has been studying arrangement with Go Hashimoto and Kazuo Mise, and also jazz performance with Bruce Stark.

Since 2007 she has been invited every year to perform in Tokyo at the international music festival “La Folle Journée au Japon” (a Franco-Japanese collaboration, supported by the French embassy).

Emiko is based in London and works internationally as a pianist and chamber musician.
