Mayumi Kanagawa / violin
Berlin based, Japanese-American violinist Mayumi, is known for her rich, dark sound and focused, engaging musicality. Prizewinner at the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow and 2018 Long-Thibaud Crespin competition in Paris, she is establishing herself as a soloist and chamber musician in Japan, Europe, and North America.
Mayumi has performed with many orchestras including the Mariinsky Orchestra, Belgian National Symphony, Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, among others. Mayumi’s musical education has been shaped by Kolja Blacher, Yoshiko Nakura, Masao Kawasaki, and Robert Lipsett. She currently performs on a Petrus Guarnerius (Mantua, late 17th century) violin, on generous loan from the Deutsche Musikinstrumentenfond of the Deutsch Stiftung Musikleben.
