Not a Single Cloud Exist 

“Even on the non-Western instrument, this is a tasty, rhythmically vital piece of acoustic rock and roll… ”
“Beyond the entertaining energy, the composition has excellent solo writing…”

New York Classical Review (January 26, 2016)

The Road 

“Yoko Sato’s soulful The Road,”

Seen and Hear International (September 19, 2017)

“The ‘now for something completely different’ tone of the evening was set immediately by Yoko Sato’s The Road for solo shamisen (N.Y. premiere)… for the banjo-like Japanese instrument, performed with poise and verve by Yoko Reikano Kimura.”

New York Classical Review (August 31, 2017)




 Sang Hwa

 “Sato fully exploits the capacity for the viols, including chordal passages, strumming, various other pizzicato techniques and a variety of bowings, all expertly executed by the consort. Her melodic vocabulary, coupled with the extended instrumental techniques, creates an Asian atmosphere, evoking images of a koto played in a peaceful garden, especially in the second movement.”
