His collaboration with the late violinist Eugene Fodor resulted in over thirty recitals and a CD of violin and piano music, “Witches’ Brew.” Their performances took them across the United States and also included concerts at the National Center for the Performing Arts in Mumbai, India and the Festival Internacional Cervantino in Guanajuato, Mexico. Dr. Tamagawa has performed at Weill Recital Hall, Merkin Hall and Bargemusic in New York, Wigmore Hall in London, where he was called an “excellent” pianist by The Strad magazine, and on the Dame Myra Hess Memorial Concerts series in Chicago. Recently he has played recitals at California State University/Fullerton and University of Wisconsin/Eau Claire, appeared with the Temple Symphony Orchestra as soloist in the Second Piano Concerto of Rachmaninoff, and lectured and performed in Paris. In February 2013 he appeared with the Austin Symphony performing Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 3, accompanying Ballet Austin’s performance of Balanchine’s Allegro Brillante. He has presented sessions at national conferences of the American String Teachers’ Association and Music Teachers’ National Association, and his writings on musical topics have been published in American Music Teacher, American String Teacher, American Suzuki Journal and Keyboard (now Clavier) Companion. He was named this past June as the 2013 Collegiate Teacher of the Year by the Texas Music Teachers’ Association.
