Fumiaki Miura Violin Recital

Fumiaki Miura, the 2009 First Prize Winner of the International Joseph Joachim Violin Competition in Hannover, Germany, was born in Japan in 1993.  He comes from a musical family; his father is a concertmaster and his sister is studying the piano. Fumiaki Miura began to play the violin at the age of three. In 2008 he was admitted to the Toho Gakuen School of Music in Tokyo as one of the most promising future talents, and until recently, studied with Tsugio Tokunaga. Since the beginning of the 2009/10 winter semester, he continued his studies at the Vienna Conservatory with Professor Pavel Vernikov. He regularly attends master classes with Pavel Vernikov, Jean-Jacques Kantrow, and Zakhar Bron.

He has already performed with many orchestras including the NDR Radiophilharmonie, Polish Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo Philharmonic, Ensemble Kanazawa, Osaka Philharmonic, Sapporo Symphony Orchestra, and the Nagoya Philharmonic Orchestra.

Performances in 2011 and 2012 included concerts at the Mozartfest Würzburg, Menuhin Festival Gstaad, Schleswig-Holstein Musikfestival, Laeiszhalle Hamburg and the festival “Julian Rachlin and Friends.” In 2012 he soloed on a tour of Japan with the Prague Philharmonia under the baton of Jakub Hrusa.

The 2012/2013 concert season saw Fumiaki give his debut with the NDR Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, Konzerthaus Vienna with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, and also his first appearance in the United States with the Utah Symphony. A particular highlight was the Polish premiere of Penderecki’s Concerto for Viola and Violin, in November 2012 with Julian Rachlin and the Poznan Philharmonic.

Fumiaki Miura did not only win First Prize at the 2009 Hannover Violin Competition, he also won the Music Critics’ Prize and the Audience Prize.  He is therefore not only the youngest winner in the history of the competition, but also the most decorated winner.

In both 2003 and 2004 – as an elementary student – Fumiaki Miura won Second Prize in the All Japan Students’ Music Competition. In 2006, he was awarded Second Prize at the Yehudi Menuhin International Violin Competition for Young Violinists. When participating in the Music Academy in Miyazaki, he was awarded as one of the best performers in 2008 and 2009.

In May 2011, Sony Japan released Fumiaki’s first recording of both Prokofiev Sonatas with Itamar Golan.
