“I believe, music can save people.”

As early as Kindergarten, Fumika Mohri learnt that you can make almost anything from something as simple as a piece of paper – she loves origami, not least as a part of her Japanese culture. She is likewise fascinated by Greek mythology – as the foundations of European culture, which she experienced for the first time in Vienna at the age of 17. The impression made by this city kindled the idea of pursuing her musical development in Europe. This idea became a desire, and finally a plan as Fumika decided to study with Mihaela Martin in Kronberg. Now she enjoys both of her worlds – and since she misses her mother’s cooking, she herself has begun cooking in Kronberg, something which she likes doing best with others. After all, the most wonderful thing is to share things – such as music, the gift of which she mostly wishes to give to people who are struggling.

Fumika Mohri was born in Japan in 1994 and began playing the violin at the age of three. She has studied with Kaori Tajiri, Sachika Mizuno and Koichiro Harada at the Toho Gakuen School of Music. In 2014 she received her soloist diploma there.

She has won numerous prizes in competitions in Japan and beyond. In 2012 she won first prize at the Seoul International Music Competition, becoming the youngest first prizewinner in the history of the competition. In 2015 she won second prize in the Premio Paganini International Violin Competition and sixth prize in the Queen Elisabeth International Music Competition in Brussels. Furthermore she won third prize in the Montreal International Music Competition in 2019.

As a soloist, Fumika Mohri has performed with major orchestras such as Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Korean Symphony Orchestra, Munich Chamber Orchestra, Orchestre National de Belgique, Brussels Philharmonic, Orchestre symphonique de Montréal, Kremerata Baltica and Chamber Orchestra of Europe. She has also collaborated with eminent artists including Sir András Schiff, Abdel Rahman El Bacha, Ilya Gringolts, Nobuko Imai, Tabea Zimmermann and Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi. She gave her debut recital at Kioi Hall, Tokyo in 2016.

From 2015 until 2021 Fumika Mohri has studied at Kronberg Academy with Mihaela Martin. These studies were funded by the Ulla Minners/Lore Buscher Scholarship.
