Noriko Ogawa

Noriko Ogawa began piano lessons at the age of four and a half, continuing her musical education at the Tokyo College of Music High School. She then went to the Juilliard School in New York, where she won the Gina Bachauer Memorial Scholarship, and whilst in that city played the piano for Benjamin Kaplan. Ogawa studied with Kaplan and states that she learnt from him the things she had not learnt from her other teachers. She returned to Japan where she later received a letter from Kaplan offering her the chance to enter the Leeds International Piano Competition: he offered her a scholarship of £1,000 from a benefactor to enable her to do this. She won third prize at the Leeds Competition, as a result receiving offers of recitals and concerto appearances. However, since Ogawa’s repertoire was small, she was unable to accept all the offered engagements, so her career began slowly with appearances in Britain, America, Japan and Asia.
