"She brings to these small pieces the same level of musicianship and attention to detail that you might expect in a Beethoven sonata."
Mami Shikimori has performed in world renowned concert halls including New York’s Carnegie Weill Hall, London’s Wigmore Hall, Southbank Centre, Cadogan Hall, Bridgewater Hall and Tokyo’s Suntory Hall.
Her latest album “Tchaikovsky Piano Music” is currently receiving critical acclaim in the UK, Japan, France, Spain and the USA. Her recording was recently featured in the Canadian radio programme “Women in music” on the Grand 101 and broadcast on Classic FM and BBC Radio 3.
