Reine Hirano May 16, 2016

Born in a musical family in Tokyo, Reine Hirano started cello lessons at the age of nine. She specialized in aesthetics at the University of Tokyo, and was awarded the Master of Arts. She continued to study in Vienna under Gerhard Iberer (cellist of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra) and chamber music at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna. She attended the Master Classes by Steven Isserlis and Anner Bylsma.
In 2004, she became a prize winner of the International Chamber Music Festival in Austria “Allegro Vivo”. In 2005, she won the Artis-Award and the Siemens-Award of the Viennese Classicism at the International Summer Academy Prague-Vienna-Budapest. In 2017, she was awarded the BEETHOVEN MEDAL by the city of Baden for the extraordinary achievements in Beethoven’s works.
As a solo and chamber musician she performs in concert halls worldwide including the Konzerthaus in Vienna and the Suntory Hall in Tokyo. She has been invited to various festivals such as the “Mozartwoche”, the “Beethoventage” and the “Musikalischer Sommer in Ostfriesland”, and teaches at Master Classes.
She is a member of the “Capella Academica Vienna”, the Fuller Fortepiano Trio and the Tokyo-Vienna Quartet. Austrian composer Peter Barcaba dedicated his Cello Sonata to her. She also plays the cello in classical period set-up. “Reine Hirano’s performance conveys Viennese scent to the audience through her pure and rich musicality. This is very valuable in today's musical world, where the technique dominates.” (“Ongaku Gendai”)
She released the CDs “Reine debut”, “Zum roten Igel – Brahms in Vienna and his Friends”, “Although spring has come...”, “Divertimento” and “Pianists’ Cello” (“Stereo” magazine’s DISC OF THE MONTH).
