Ms Honma is a pianist based in the San Francisco Bay area. Besides maintaining a busy schedule as a concert soloist, collaborative performer and teacher, for the last year she has been recording the complete 35 Beethoven Piano Sonatas for Divine Art Recordings, in what will be a comprehensive new interpretation of these magnificent works in time for Beethoven's 250th birthday celebrations in 2020 (his birthday is thought to have been on or around 16 December 1770) . These new recordings will be the first complete set to include three sonatas Beethoven composed and published in his youth, expanding the usual "complete" set from 32 to 35. Ms Honma is using the latest critical edition of the complete sonatas by Dr Barry Cooper, which includes many hundreds of corrections to previously published versions. These new landmark recordings are expected to be available around October of 2020. Stay tuned for more news closer to the time.
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
