Tomono Kawamura has been working in London for some time, though currently living back in Japan, and is also a very popular performer on cruise ships. Her debut album, ‘Reminiscence’, reflects repertoire found in her shipboard concerts with a program of popular masterworks – and one or two rarities including the first recording of her own piece ‘Variations’.
‘Reminiscence’ will be issued on the Divine Art label (DDA 25170) in the summer.
Tomono was awarded a scholarship by the Yamaha Music Foundation, after studying at the Yamaha Music School starting at the age of 3, to study at the Royal Academy of Music in London. There she studied with Christopher Elton and the late Maria Curcio. She has appeared as a soloist throughout Asia, Europe and the UK in such venues as the Snape Maltings, Aldeburgh, St. Martin in the Fields and the Wigmore Hall, London.
