Ms Honma is an internationally acclaimed pianist renowned for the spell-binding power and expressiveness of her performances. Based in the San Francisco Bay area, she maintains a busy schedule as a concert soloist, collaborative performer, teacher and recording artist. She recently finished recording the complete Beethoven Piano Sonatas for Divine Art/Naxos in what will be a stunning new interpretation of these magnificent works. These will be available in early 2024.
Ms Honma will be appearing 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." 8pm Cañada College, Redwood City, California. (7pm pre-concert talk)
On October 15, she will also be appearing with the Saratoga Symphony 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." 3pm McAfee Center in Saratoga, California.
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
An eloquent, powerful performance

Honma played with both flair and immediate understanding
