The name “Asuka” comes from the Japanese and means “morning scent”. “Mona” means many beautiful things in different languages: in Arabic, it means “hope”, whereas in Gaelic/Irish it means “noble one”. The pianist is just as special as the names she bears. “Mona Asuka, as a modernist, knows how to keep a cool head. She knows how to use sentiment as just one facet of interpretation instead of wallowing in it over the entire piece,” wrote the Süddeutsche Zeitung. She gave her acclaimed début at the Ruhr Piano Festival in 2008, when she was still a teenager. With her heartening personality, she has been a welcome guest several times over the past two years in our podcast “AnTasten,” where she offered glimpses into her life as a professional concert pianist, as well as revealing her other great passion: baking. Mona Asuka’s 13th concert at the Ruhr Piano Festival offers an appealing programme: Beethoven’s Sonata in A Flat Major, Bach’s Italian Concerto, and a homage to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Max Reger’s birth. Reger’s Telemann Variations offer a playful, charming glimpse into his fascinating piano music.

Mona Asuka

Every artist has her own fuel: a fuel to drive her inspiration and give meaning to her very own artistic quest. In Mona Asuka’s case, it has always been a two-component fuel, consisting of personal experiences and those moments up on stage when she is able to feel the direct joy of the audience. After Asuka’s first experiences in concerts and competitions she first appeared as a soloist with an orchestra when she was thirteen years old. The list of acclaimed orchestras she played with has steadily grown since her years of study with Karl- Heinz Kämmerling in Salzburg and Bernd Glemser in Würzburg. She worked with the Staatskapelle Weimar, the Philharmonia Orchestra London, the Hong Kong Philharmonic, the Mozarteumorchester Salzburg and the Musikkollegium Winterthur.
