Marisa Muñoz-López is a Spanish pianist and composer based in London. She has performed in venues in the UK and Spain, including The Southbank Centre and Auditorio Príncipe de Asturias.  Marisa has received a total of nine prizes in national and international piano and chamber music competitions. These include First Prize at the John Halford 2019 competition and several First Place awards in the North London Festival, for which she was nominated to perform at the Emanuel Trophy Competition 2018. Marisa is a keen supporter of living composers, has had numerous works written for her, and has been invited to participate in projects such as the XXI Festival Latinoamericano de Música and Bloomsbury Festival 2021. Marisa has been requested to write for a variety of musicians including Douglas Finch and Elena Riu. Her works have been performed live in different venues, including The Great Hall at Blackheath Halls, where her orchestral piece ‘The Lesser of Two Evils’ was conducted by Gregory Rose. Max Reinhardt, Late Junction BBC Radio3 presenter, stated that he was ‘swept away’ by this piece and that he ‘identified elements of both Stravinsky and Morricone’ in it, and awarded her First Prize at the Daryl Runswick Competition 2018. Marisa has also worked as a soundtrack composer in collaboration with film makers and is an alumnus of the Palomar Film Music Workshop, led by Larry Groupé. Marisa is a creative producer and is passionate about collaborating other artists. She has worked with composers from the UK, Spain, Venezuela, Hong Kong and Italy, eighteen of which for a project she created called ‘Monday Miniatures’. This online project also involved the work of international photographers, dancers, painters and video editors. Marisa has also worked as an arranger, and as session musician recording solo works as well as with ensembles. Moreover, she enjoys performing in chamber music, as an accompanist, and with dancers and film makers.  Marisa has received masterclasses from renowned musicians including pianists such as Joaquín Achúcarro, Pascal Rogé, Rena Shereshevskaya and Thomas Hecht, and composers like Christopher Young and Tarik O’Regan among others. Marisa completed a double major in Composition and Performance with First Class Honors at Trinity Laban Conservatoire and was awarded the TCL Silver Medal for Piano 2020. She is currently pursuing a Masters in Music (Performance) at the Royal Academy of Music with Professor Amandine Savary.

What if my timings change after I've booked you?

I always try to be flexible. If timings change slightly in the run up to the event just let me know, there shouldn't be a problem.

If I have a piano at my venue, are you happy to perform on that?

Yes, of course - as long as the piano is in working order and in tune, then I'm happy to play on it!

Can I pick the songs you play from the set list?

My list contains only some highlights of my preferred works in different styles. You're invited to enquire about other works in whichever style you're interested in. Also, please send your suggestions and requests! I'm definetly happy to discuss them with you and give them a go.

Can you learn song requests before the event?

Yes, of course. There's a chance I already know it, and I'm always happy to learn new songs! Please consider sending them at least two weeks in advance. If you don't, depending on the difficulty and length of the piece, there is a fee of £5-30 for this service to take into account rehearsal time.
