Celebrating 10 years of Japanese-Monegasque relations
The Association Ars Antonina announces the Monaco debut of the young Japanese pianist, Tomoki Sakata, in a recital at the Théâtre des Variétés in Monaco, on Wednesday, April 6, 2016 at 20:00. This event is part of the bilateral Celebration of 10 Years of Japanese-Monégasque Relations, under the patronage of H.E. Mr Yoichi Suzuki, Japanese Ambassador to Monaco, and of H.E. Patrick Médecin, Ambassador of Monaco to Japon.
Tomoki Sakata came to world attention when he became the youngest finalist in the history of the International Van Cliburn Piano Competition in the USA. He was winner of the Grand Prix in the Asia International Music Competition, as well as the First Prize in the Changjiang Cup International Music Competition.
Sakata has made recital, chamber and concerto appearances at leading concert halls and festivals throughout Europe, Asia, U.S.A and Africa, to great acclaim, and been heard in concert not only on Italian, Japanese and Swiss radio but also on American, Japanese and Russian television. Tomoki Sakata has performed as soloist with many of the leading orchestras of the world, and is fast building a reputation for his virtuosic skill, lyrical gift, pristine touch and elegant phrasing. I hope that you will be able to join us for this program of Beethoven, Chopin, Granados and Scriabin.
