Kanae Furomoto studied at the Royal Academy of Music in London, firstly with Lois Phillips, and later with Hamish Milne. She was awarded several prestigious prizes and scholarships inside and outside the college, and gained the M.Mus. from the University of London. In 1999 she was chosen as a soloist for the PLG Young Artist Concert Series to appear at the Purcell Room in London. Her experience as a soloist, as ensemble player and as accompanist extends from the radio broadcasts on the Classic FM, the NHK-FM and others to appearances at various music festivals including the Budapest Spring Festival. She has given performances in a number of countries in Europe, in South East Asia and in the USA, as well as within the UK and her native Japan. Her performance with the violinist of a rarely played Furtwangler's Violin Sonata No.2 in the Tokyo Furtwangler Fest in 2011 was highly acclaimed, and its live recording was made into a CD which is available from the King International Co.LTD. Her first solo CD 'Pastorale Romantique' was released last year. Recently Kanae was invited to Thailand as a jury member for The 3rd International String Competition 2014 for young players, and gave some concerts there as well.
