Biography

Since winning first prize at the Birmingham International Piano Competition in 2002, Maiko Mori has continued to build an international career as one of the outstanding soloists and chamber musicians of her generation. Maiko has been described as “clearly an exceptional artist, providing herself to be both a thrilling virtuoso and a fine poet of the keyboard…” (Musical Opinion Magazine)Born in Okayama, Japan, Maiko began her piano and composition studies at the age of five at the Yamaha School. Under the tutelage of Chikako Shibata, Maiko gained much recognition. She gave her first public recital at the age of 6, performing her own compositions. She continued to perform her compositions in major concerts throughout Japan until the age of 13, when she decided to concentrate on piano performance, a decision that was soon vindicated with successes at numerous competitions throughout Japan, including the National Classical Music Competition of Japan.
