NIGI SATO, lyric soprano, was born
in Tokyo Japan, and studied at
the Juilliard School of Music in New York.
She has performed her unique repertoire
around the world with great orchestras
and accompanists.
Nigi was First prize winner at the
International Voice Competition,
Vercilli, Italy, 1975.
Her operatic roles have included
Cio-Cio-San in Madama Butterfly,
Liu in Turandot,
Netta in Piagliacci,
Cleopatra in Guilio Cesare
and Micaela in Carmen.

"I think every musician should study Scarlatti. It is wonderful music.
I chose to open this recital with two crisp and beautiful pieces by Scarlatti.

Schubert’s Der Hit auf dem Felsen for voice, piano and clarinet
is one of the most beautiful chamber music pieces.

Se Pieta (...”have you no pity for me”) is from Handel’s opera, Guilio Cesare.
Cleopatra was one of my roles.

O Quanta Volte is the most beautiful soprano aria I know,. It is from
Vencenzo Bellini’s opera, I Capuletti et I Montecchi (Romeo & Juliet).

I found the two Cimarra songs when I was reading music scores in the
Library at Lincoln Center. As I began singing them, I really liked them.

O Cease Thy Singing Maiden Fair by Rachmaninoff is such a famous song.

Many times in recitals, I’ve sung Un Bel Di as an encore.
Since I’ve played Cio-Cio-San, people expect me to sing it
and if I don’t, they won’t leave the hall."

-Nigi Sato, August 2010

Why these valuable recordings have only now come to light is a mystery. Let’s just be grateful that they have surfaced so that a new generation can experience afresh the wonder that is Nigi. What a discovery! What a delight!
