Yoshiko Morita

Japanese-born Yoshiko Marita studied the viola at the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music with Fumiko Asatsuma, Toshiyuki Uzaka, and Yuki Hyakutake. There she won third prize in the „30th Student Music Competition“.

Following completion of her studies and further work with Ulrich Koch she focused her attention on the original technique and style of early music.

She specialized in this particular musical genre under Toshinari Ohashi and Sadao Udagawa, adding to that the Baroque violin under the tutelage of Natsumi Wakamatsu, Katherine MacIntosh, and Enrico Gatti.

As member of such renowned ensembles as The Bach Collegium Japan, The Tokyo Bach Mozart Orchestra, the L’Estro Armonico Tokyo, and the Collegium Arggentum, Yoshiko Marito divides her time between Japan and Amsterdam, where she is violist with the Orchester des 18. Jahrhunderts, lead by director Frans Brüggen. Yoshiko Morita plays an Edward Pamphilon viola.
