Mayuko Kamio, Violin
2007 Gold Medalist of the International Tchaikovsky Competition
Japanese violinist Mayuko Kamio is widely praised for her luxurious silken tone, long expressive phrasing and virtuoso techniques. The New York Times has called Ms. Kamio an “exciting young musician” and “a radiant talent.” Ms. Kamio made her concerto debut in Tokyo at the age of ten under the baton of Charles Dutoit, and has appeared as soloist with the Boston Pops conducted by Keith Lockhart, the Tonhalle Orchestra in Zurich with Mstislav Rostropovich, and the Israel Philharmonic under Zubin Mehta. She has toured all over the entire globe with many of the world’s great orchestras and conductors.
In addition to the Tchaikovsky Gold Medal, she is the youngest artist to have won the Menuhin International Violin Competition in 1998. In 2000 she took first prize at the Young Concert Artists International Auditions, and in 2004 she won the first Monte Carlo Violin Masters Competition. She has released four recordings on the SONY and BMG labels.
