Mieko Kanno

M.Kanno@rcs.ac.uk

Mieko specialises in the combined disciplines of performance and musicology in contemporary music. Since winning the Kranichsteiner Musikpreis at the Darmstadt New Music Institute in 1994 for the interpretation of contemporary music, she has collaborated with many composers Europe-wide, commissioned and premiered new works, and has established herself as one of the leading exponents of contemporary music.

Mieko is interested in how musical works change their identity with time and this research is much informed by her practice. In addition to her solo work, Mieko is widely experienced as an ensemble violinist and has been a leading participant in groups such as the New Music Players, Exposé, Apartment House, the Utrecht-based ensemble insomnio and others.
