Artist info

Chihiro Ono

Born in Japan, Chihiro Ono (小野智尋) started her musical journey on the piano at the age of four. After picking up the violin two years later, she went on to study with Kenji Kobayashi at the Toho Gakuen School of Music in Tokyo. Equally proficient on the viola and on the violin, it was on the viola that she played in her first string quartet, with opportunities such as to play for Seiji Ozawa and the Juilliard String Quartet. In 2000 she moved to London to study with Yfrah Neaman at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Since then she has also studied with Simon Fischer, Krysia Osostowicz, Levon Chilingirian, Györgÿ Pauk, Itzhak Rashkovsky and András Keller. She obtained her Master's degree from the Royal College of Music with distinction in 2007. Sought after both as a violinist and a violist, she performs and broadcasts as a soloist, a leader and a chamber musician in Britain and Japan in venues and festivals such as Wigmore Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St John's Smith Square, the London Contemporary Music Festival, Viola Space Festival, British Music Information Contemporary Music Series, Lake District Summer Music's Rising Stars Series, International Musicians' Seminar Prussia Cove Open Chamber Music, as well as appearing on BBC Radio 3. She has worked with many established groups and musicians, such as the Primrose Piano Quartet, the Ensemble Modern, Christoph Richter, Julian Jacobson, Levon Chilingirian, and Krysia Osostowicz.
