See these videos: Tamami in conversation with leading Beethoven scholar, Professor Barry Cooper, editor of the ABRSM edition of the Beethoven Piano Sonata discussing how he approached the task of editing Beethoven's revered works and how she approached performing them. The first is a short preview version (about 5 minutes) and the second the full version (45 minutes).

Make no mistake Honma is a superb player… a remarkably eloquent achievement… Hearing her performances one appreciates immediately how technically able and interpretatively alert she is… she catches its febrile intensity to perfection…very strongly recommended

CONCERTS

April 9 2024 at San Jose State University's Concert Hall

In a concert sponsored by the Beethoven Society commemorating the 200th anniversary of the first performance of Beethoven's 9th Symphony which took place in Vienna in 1824,  Ms Honma will be performing Franz Liszt's transcription of the symphony for two pianos with Daniel Glover (piano) and John Gerling (percusssion). 

Ms Honma appeared with the Redwood Symphony on September 23 in a performance of Beethoven's Piano Concerto No 4, that was described after its first performance by the composer himself as "the most admirable, singular, artistic and complex Beethoven concerto ever."  

On October 15, she appeared with the Saratoga Symphony at the McAfee Center in Saratoga, California in a performance of Ferruccio Busoni's extraordinary piano concerto. The work, composed over one hundred years ago, was only recently given its West Coast premiere, an event for which reviewers raved: “Awe and wonder," "Sheer energy and dynamism,"  "Shot of pure adrenalin," "Kaleidoscopic," and "a once in a lifetime opportunity for audiences."  .
