Described as “a brilliant pianist between worlds” (Der Kessener), Ikuko Inoguchi is an internationally acclaimed concert pianist and performer-scholar. Ikuko is particularly interested in exploring repertoire which displays cross-cultural influences and the music of Japanese composers.
As a prize-winning pianist, Ikuko has performed as a soloist and chamber musician in concert series and festivals across Europe, the US, and Asia. In 2013 she made her London concerto debut, performing Anton Rubinstein’s Piano Concerto No. 4 with the City University Symphony Orchestra. As an advocate of new music, she has premiered a number of works and worked with composers, such as Paul Chihara, William Drabkin, and Joe Cutler.
She was an invited speaker and performer at a study day in The BBC Total Immersion: Music from Japan series, a Takemitsu Society meeting, The Contemporary Music Research Centre at the University of York, and Trinity Laban Conservatory of Music.
In the UK, she was awarded a PhD from City, University of London. She is currently a Visiting Research Fellow at City, University of London and the Artist-in-residence at Clifton High School.
