Harpsichord
Mayako Sone
Profile
Also as a soloist, Mayako Sone is always widely acclaimed and appears in concert halls and music festivals in Japan and in Europe. She is recognized by the international musical press as "...a virtuoso who has the confidence of a rare musician joining a great technique to a deep musical sensitivity... Her body seems to be crossed by waves; she speaks with her instrument and her hands, and her fingers realize an infernal choreography communicating and charming the audience. She belongs to the highest class of musicians".
In 1986, having been awarded a prize at the International Harpsichord Competition in Bruges (Belgium), she continued her studies in France and in Italy with Scott Ross, Kenneth Gilbert and Gustav Leonhardt.
In 1990 she was invited to become resident harpsichordist with the Israel Chamber Orchestra, performing regularly under the baton of Shlomo Mintz.
Ms. Sone became ERATO's first exclusive Japanese artist, having been chosen by the label to record the Unpublished Sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti _ a project undertaken in order to fulfill the wishes of the late Scott Ross who had released a collection of the complete harpsichord works of Scarlatti. Her recordings thus far include the following titles: "J.S. Bach: Goldberg Variations", "Scarlatti: Sonates Inédites", "Cinéma Clavecin", "Je l aime", "J.S. Bach: French Suite", and "J.S. Bach: Toccata".
