Artist info

Mika Doi

Japanese born Mika Doi began to study the violin at the age of 7. She graduated from the Kobe Yamate Girl’s High School (department of music) and the Osaka College of Music. In 2007 she won the Superior Prize in the Kobe International Competition and in 2009 won first Prize in the All Japan Art Music Competition leading to an invitation to perform a recital for the All Japan Art Association.

She is currently studying with Professor Tomotada Soh, and this concert marks her return to Japan after a period of study in London.

Philip Howard

Philip Howard was born in 1976. Initially self-taught, he was a student of Alexander Abercrombie between the ages of 10 and 18, later going on to study composition and piano at the Royal Academy of Music, where his teachers were Michael Finnissy and Graeme Humphrey.

Philip won first prize at the International Gaudeamus Interpreters' Competition 2003 held in Rotterdam, becoming the first British winner since 1968. At the age of 15 he won joint first prize in the first BBC Young Musician of the Year Composer Award.

Among other performances, Philip has given solo recitals in London at the Purcell Room and in the BMIC Cutting Edge series at The Warehouse, as well as in the Ultima festival in Oslo, Gaudeamus Music Week in Amsterdam, and the "Berlin Piano Days" (Berliner Klaviertage).

He has appeared on a number of CDs including his own solo piano album "Decoding Skin", which was released in 2004 and which features works by Iannis Xenakis, Morton Feldman and Michael Finnissy alongside pieces by young British composers Paul Newland, Max Wilson and Paul Whitty.
