Free Admission
Public information: 410-455-ARTS

Violinist and composer Mari Kimura picks up the tradition of the virtuoso performer/composer and carries it straight into the future. The New York Times raved her solo performance as “Chilling...gripping...charming...Ms. Kimura is a virtuoso playing at the edge.” Branching out from a mastery of traditional violin repertoire, Ms. Kimura embraces the worlds of extended violin technique and interactive computer music, making them her own. She pushes the boundaries of the instrument, playing both her own works and those that numerous composers have written especially for her. Ms. Kimura has premiered pieces by such composers as Toshi Ichiyanagi, Jean-Claude Risset, and Tania León.

Ms. Kimura is widely admired for her revolutionary extended technique “Subharmonics,” and for the solo performances of diverse programs. She has developed an international performing career that has taken her to festivals throughout the world, performing her own works in more than 18 countries. Recent appearances include those at the Spring in Budapest festival, the Musiana Festival in Denmark, Festival Internacional Cervantino in Mexico, International Bartók Festival in Hungary, Other Minds festival in San Francisco, International Symposium of Electronic Art (ISEA) in Helsinki and Rotterdam, and International Computer Music Conference (ICMC) in San José, Thessaloniki, Banff and Göteborg, Sweden. Ms. Kimura was a featured soloist at ISCM World Music Days 2002 in Hong Kong, performing with Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

In her native Japan, Ms. Kimura was awarded 1995 Kenzo Nakajima Music Prize, a prestigious honor in recognition of her creative activities in the country. She has given the Japanese premiere of major contemporary violin concertos including works by John Adams and Anders Hillborg, as a soloist with the Tokyo Philharmonic, Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, and Orchestra Ensemble Kanazawa, and continues to perform as a soloist with major orchestras. The renowned Japanese composer Toshi Ichiyanagi has described her as “a violinist on a grand scale... her activity gives us bright hopes for the future in the field.”

As a composer, her recent commissions include Violin Concerto for violin and interactive computer system with orchestra (Teatro Juarez in Guanajuato, Mexico, 1999), Kivika for dance (Joyce SOHO in New York, 2000), Arboleda for viola and electronics (Merkin Hall in New York, 2001), and Descarga Interactive (ICMC Commission Award) which was premiered in Göteborg, Sweden in 2002. Her latest work, GuitarBotana is a piece with GuitarBot (LEMUR), commissioned by Harvestworks. Ms. Kimura's works have been supported by grants including Meet the Composer, Jerome Foundation, and the New York State Council on the Arts.
