Izumi Kimuna

Izumi Kimura is a Japanese pianist based in Dublin. After graduating from Toho Gakuen School of Music in Tokyo, she moved to Ireland in 1995 and started to work as a contemporary classical pianist with many Irish composers, as well as some of the leading Irish and international Jazz musicians. For the past decade, she has been developing her life-work in the practice of improvisation and its holistic process of musical interactions and communications.

Izumi wishes to develop during her residency at CCI her connections with musicians based in France and other European countries, thus inviting them to work with her to create and present new music.
