Born in Osaka, Momo Kodama studied piano at the Conservatoire national supérieur de musique in Paris, continuing her education with Murray Perahia, András Schiff and Tatiana Nikolayeva. In 1991 she became the youngest prizewinner of the Munich ARD competition. She performs regularly with leading orchestras in Japan, Europe and the United States, and is equally in demand as a recitalist and chamber musician. A large part of her repertoire is dedicated to contemporary music. In 2002, on the tenth anniversary of Messiaen’s death, she performed his Turangalîla Symphony, Les Visions de l’Amen with her sister Mari, and Les Vingt regards sur l’enfant Jésus in a series of highly successful concerts. She is also the dedicatee of works such as Lichtstudie 3 by Jörg Widmann, of which she gave the première at the Lucerne Festival, and Echo by Ichiro Nodaira, composed for Momo and Mari Kodama. In 2009, Momo Kodama was honoured by the Kenzo Nakajima Memorial Fund for her work to advance contemporary music.
