If you have never heard the sound of Yuki Murata’s piano, you are yet to know the possibilities of music.
Yuki Murata, composer/pianist of Anoice (neo-classical/post-rock group) and Films (dark classical music unit, featuring members of Anoice), has released highly-praised albums all over the world and recently completed a Russian tour with a great success. She is now preparing for tours in China, Europe, and the US planned for 2015.
Her beautiful third solo album includes her outstanding gift for composing music, admired by internationally famous Japanese composers Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nobuo Uematsu and Takeshi Kobayashi, and for her skill in playing the piano that has brought her many awards in competitions such as PTNA Grand Muse and The International Piano Duo Contest. She has also left her name in the history books of the three major international film festivals; Cannes, Berlin, and Venezia. Those lovely piano sounds and fine melodies by her great talents, will echo through the minds of many people in the world!!
