Keigo Mukawa

Keigo Mukawa won the 3rd Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2021, and the 2nd Prize at the Long-Thibaud-Crespin Competition in 2019. He has attached a lot of attention by winning top prizes in these prestigious international competitions and is currently performing in a wide range of solo and chamber music activities based in Japan and Europe. With a repertoire ranging from baroque to contemporary music, Mukawa has a reputation for his performances that explore the stylistic beauty of each era and composer, and for his diverse tone quality. Apart from the modern piano, he is also researching on playing methods on the fortepiano.


In 2017, Mukawa performed all solo piano works by Maurice Ravel, one of the composers he has deepened his research on after studying in France, in 6 recitals at CHANEL Pygmalion Days. He released a recording of Ravel’s complete works for solo piano from NOVA Record in 2022. All 4 recitals held at Hamarikyu Asahi Hall to commemorate the release were sold out. Mukawa gives recitals every year, and in 2023, he held the 5 consecutive night recitals at Hamarikyu Asahi Hall, which were well received as in 2022.


After studying at the Tokyo University of the Arts, Mukawa was admitted to the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique de Paris with unanimous honors by the judges. He completed the 3rd cycle in piano as well as the 1st graduate cycle in chamber music. He is currently majoring the fortepiano in addition to performing around the world. He has also published his own arrangement of the piano solo version of Ravel’s “Ma Mère l’Oye” by Muse Press.


In 2024, Mukawa was awarded the 33rd Idemitsu Music Award.
