Biography

Yuzuko Horigome began playing the piano at the age of four and the violin at the age of five with Ryosaku Kubota.
In 1975 she studied under Toshiya Eto and graduated from Toho Gakuen School of Music in 1980. In the same year, she became the first Japanese to win first prize at the Queen Elizabeth International Music Competition in Brussels, Belgium. This led her to worldwide acclamation, bringing invitations from all over the world, particularly from European countries, to appear with leading orchestras and to give recitals. In no time, she joined the ranks of other accomplished performers.

Ms. Horigome has accompanied the Berlin Philharmonic, the London Symphony, the Vienna Symphony, the Scala of Milan Philharmonic, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Montreal Symphony, Chicago Symphony, the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony and many Japanese orchestras.
In addition to her accomplishments as a soloist, she is an avid chamber musician, frequently appearing at the Marlboro Music Festival in the US, and also participated in the Lockenhaus Music Festival sponsored by Gidon Kremer. Furthermore, as one of the original members of the Casals Hall Quartet, the resident quartet at the hall in Tokyo, she has contributed greatly by giving six highly-praised tours in Japan since 1990. Recently, she organized “Ensemble Consonance” with the close European musicians, and they are often invited to the music festivals through Europe.
