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. She obtained the Frederick Jackson Award in her second year and graduated as a Master of Arts in 2009.

Before coming to London, she studied at Tokyo College of Music. During her studies she spent one year at the Liszt Ferenc Academy in Budapest as a postgraduate student with Balanyay Laszlo and Géza Németh (the Bartok Quartet).

Emiko has won many prizes including First Prize in the Japanese International League of Arts Competition, First Prize in the American Protégé Music Competition and she received the Janet Duff Prize (Best Performance of Contemporary Music) from the Royal Academy of Music. She has taken part in masterclasses with many acclaimed musicians including Boris Berman, Christopher Elton, Simon Mulligan, Rolf Hind and Kemal Gekic.

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

She has performed as a soloist in many international venues including Carnegie Hall, Tokyo Opera City Hall, Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, Suntory Hall, Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum, St Dunstan-in-the-west, St Alfege Church, St James Church, London Science Museum and Bristol Cathedral.

Emiko has collaborated with numerous musicians and composers in many premiers including the Leeds Lieder Festival. As well as Classical performance, Emiko has been studying arrangement and jazz piano with Bruce Stark. Her wide scope of interests has also led to many collaborations with artists and dance groups.

She is currently based in London and works as a soloist and a chamber musician.

Bristol Cathedral is situated in the middle of the city at the bottom of Park Street. It was founded in 1140, but was built gradually over a period of 700 years. The Cathedral hosts numerous events and concerts throughout the year. Many of these are open to the public, and some are free, including the regular lunchtime concerts on Tuesdays.
