Japanese virtuoso pianist Maki Sekiya has had a successful international career based in Russia and in Japan, after graduating from the Moscow Conservatoire. She recently returned to live in the United Kingdom, where she had studied during her teenage years at the Purcell school. Since then she has made sensational appearances around UK and received some outstanding reviews for her playing.
Maki's very wide repertoire ranges from the Baroque to the most recently written works of the 21st century. She regularly collaborates with well established composers and gives world premier performances, including pieces which were written especially for Maki and dedicated to her. She is equally at home performing concertos, solo recitals, or chamber music.
