Ikuyo Kamiya (b1946)

The leading Japanese pianist Ikuyo Kamiya began the piano at the age of eight, studied under Aiko Iguchi at the Toho Gakuen School of Music in Tokyo and, following her first prize at the Japan Music Competition, was chosen to study at the Essen National Academy in Germany, where she was a pupil of Klaus Hellwig and Stefan Askenaze. Her international career was launched following her victory at the 1972 Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition, after which she was invited to perform throughout Belgium at various festivals in recital and as a soloist with orchestras including the Brussels National Orchestra and the Antwerp Orchestra. She has since collaborated with leading orchestras and distinguished colleagues throughout the world. Ikuyo Kamiya is known for her wide repertoire, and has made twenty recordings on the RCA label, including acclaimed recordings of the major Beethoven sonatas. She continued to record on the Fontec label and in 2001 released a CD marking the 35th anniversary of her début featuring the Grieg Piano Concerto and Beethoven Piano Concerto No. 4 with the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow Radio and Chosei Komatsu. In 1988 she received the prestigious Arts Festival Award of Japan. She is currently professor at Kyoto Municipal University.
