Fumiaki Miura is not only the youngest ever winner of the Joseph Joachim Hannover International Violin Competition (2009) but also the one with the most prizes - having also been awarded both the Music Critics’ and the Audience Prize. At only 23 years old, Fumiaki has performed with several of the world’s leading orchestras, including NDR Sinfonieorchester Hamburg, NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover, Radio-Sinfonieorchester Stuttgart des SWR, Sinfonieorchester Basel, Wiener KammerOrchester, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, and Hong Kong Sinfonietta.

Notable recent highlights include debut performances with Warsaw Philharmonic (Eiji Oue); Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra and Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional de Colombia; a tour of Japan with the Prague Philharmonia (Jakub Hrůša); and a performance of Penderecki’s Double Concerto with Julian Rachlin, the principal guest conductor of Turku Philharmonic.

In keeping with its tradition of bringing these concerts to the widest possible audience, Hennessy has again arranged for a simulcast via a giant video screen located in the plaza of the Hanoi Opera House to share the wonderful music with the people of Hanoi.
