Mishka Rushdie Momen (piano)

Hailed as ‘one of the most thoughtful and sensitive of British pianists’ (The Times), Mishka Rushdie Momen captivates audiences with her refined and expressive playing. Rushdie Momen’s wide-ranging repertoire focuses on Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert and Schumann, and extends earlier to Gibbons and Rameau. Committed to performing new music, she has commissioned works from Nico Muhly and Vijay Iyer, and premiered Héloïse Werner’s An inviting object at the Lucerne Summer Festival in 2022.

Recent concerto highlights include debuts with the London Philharmonic Orchestra (performing Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto), Turku Philharmonic Orchestra (Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 23) and Chamber Orchestra Mannheim (Mozart’s Piano Concerto No 9 and Haydn’s Piano Concerto in G major, Hob XVIII:4). She has played with other notable orchestras, including the CBSO, Deutsche Kammerakademie Neuss, Orchestre national d’Île-de-France, Britten Sinfonia and Lucerne Symphony Orchestra.

Among recent recital highlights are performances at the Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, Lucerne Festival, Zürich Tonhalle, Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, Antwerp deSingel, Leeds International Piano Series, Oxford Piano Festival, The Phillips Collection (Washington, DC) and New York’s 92nd Street Y.

Equally at home as a chamber musician, Rushdie Momen has worked with recital partners Guy Johnston, Zlatomir Fung, Joshua Bell, Midori, Angela Hewitt, Stephen Waarts, Timothy Ridout and Anthony Marwood. Festival engagements include those at the Rheingau Musik, Hindsgavl, Chipping Campden Music and Trasimeno Music festivals, and the new Casals Forum (Kronberg) and IMS Prussia Cove.

Rushdie Momen’s debut solo recording Variations, featuring works by Robert and Clara Schumann, Brahms and Mendelssohn, was released in 2019 by SOMM. She was The Times arts critics’ chosen nominee in the field of classical music for their 2021 Breakthrough Award, part of the South Bank Sky Arts Awards.

Mishka Rushdie Momen studied with Joan Havill and Imogen Cooper at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama. She also studied periodically with Richard Goode, and at the Kronberg Academy with Sir András Schiff, who has presented her in recital and orchestral engagements across the USA and Europe. Rushdie Momen’s studies at the Kronberg Academy were generously funded by the Henle Foundation.
