Imma Setiadi was born in Surabaya, Indonesia. A fascination for the piano at her home led to lessons with local teachers who suggested a more serious training. At the age of fifteen, she was invited to perform one of her own compositions in UNICEF-YAMAHA Junior Original Concert in Hong Kong.
She then received her Bachelor of Music degree (first class honours) from the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music in Singapore with Albert Tiu and a Distinction in her Master of Music degree where she studied with Nigel Clayton at the Royal College of Music, London. Since her coming to the UK, she has performed in many prestigious venues. As a soloist and chamber musician she has appeared at the Bridgewater Hall, the Purcell Room at Southbank Centre, Steinway Hall, St. John’s Smith Square, Turner Contemporary, The Red-House (the house of Britten-Pears), the Royal Academy of Arts, Holywell Music Room (Oxford), the National Gallery, Blackheath Halls, and Elgar Room at the Royal Albert Hall. In masterclasses, she has worked with Michel Beroff, Angela Hewitt, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Pascal Godart, Ulrich Koella, Pascal Roge, Sir Thomas Allen and Malcolm Martineau. She has been engaged as a piano accompanist for masterclasses by world renown instrumentalists such as Pinchas Zukerman (violin), James Galway (flute), Ole Kristian-Dahl (bassoon), Raphael Wallfisch (cello), Maximiliano Martin (clarinet), Fiona Bonds (viola) and Jacques Tys (oboe).
