About the performer
One of today’s most accomplished pianists, is much in demand across Europe and Japan. He first came to prominence when he won First Prize in the Takahiro Sonoda International Piano Competition in Japan, followed by numerous top prizes in Europe, including the Birmingham International Piano Competition. Tayama studied at the Toho University of Music in Japan, and subsequently in London on a Fellowship from the Japanese Government, where he was awarded the Performer’s Diploma with Honours from both the Royal College of Music and the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.

His first London solo concert appearance was in 2002 at the South Bank’s Purcell Room, and he gave his debut recital to a sell-out audience at the Wigmore Hall in 2007, both of which were met with critical acclaim. His Tokyo debut recital at Toppan Hall in 2005 was broadcast on Nikkei National Radio in Japan, and he was a featured pianist on BBC Radio, UK, in October 2012. Tayama’s performances of Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No.3 with Osaka Symphonika at The Symphony Hall in Osaka, twice on the same day in July 2006 were hailed as ‘reinventing the image of Rachmaninov’. He made his USA debut in January 2006 at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, where the recital was broadcast live on the Internet.

Masa is also owner and performer on The Piano Boat, operating musical canal cruises near London. Link to Piano Boat

Unfortunately lockdown continues to deny us the opportunity to be able to sell tickets for a live performance at this time, but we are however planning for performances in the Kincaid Hall and hope that our May concert (details to follow) will be the second in the series which we can broadcast live, in front of a live audience (subject to no changes in the roadmap).
