Japanese pianist Tomoki Sakata “demonstrated virtuosity, considerable color and expressivity” (Dallas Morning News) during the 2013 Cliburn Competition earning him a place among the top six finalists. The youngest competitor, he received attention for his “youthful overabundance of talent” that created “its own visceral excitement” (Theater Jones). In his 2013-14 season, Mr. Sakata will embark on tours in Europe, Japan, and Morocco. He has previously appeared in concert in Osaka, Tokyo, and Yokohama as well as in Geneva, Lugano, Paris, Prague, Utrecht, and Moscow for the twelfth International Festival “Musical Kremlin.”
