“…imaginative virtuosity…” – NPR
Since graduating with top honors from Berklee College of Music, Japanese pianist Chihiro Yamanaka has been racking up the accolades as a top-shelf musician and composer. Beginning her studies at the Royal Academy of Music in England, she continued stateside at Berklee, and has since worked alongside George Benson, Nancy Wilson and Herbie Hancock. Her newest release Reminiscence (2012, Universal/Decca) reached #1 on the Japanese charts and proves to American audiences what Japanese audiences have known for a long time: that Yamanaka is a fierce talent with robust chops, plenty of soul, and a seemingly endless imagination for the musical possibilities of the piano trio.
