Moné Hattori: Waxman-ShostakovichMP3 Album:Born in Tokyo in 1999, Moné Hattori comes from a musical family. After studies in Japan with Aguri Suzuki, Yasuko Ohtani, and Akiko Tatsumi, she made her concerto debut aged eight, and enrolled in Zakhar Bron’s prestigious Academy in Interlaken, Switzerland. Her debut recording featuring Franz Waxman’s virtuoso showpiece Carmen-Fantasie is technically brilliant as well as being a rarity on record.
At just 19 years of age, winner of five international violin competitions, and likened to a young Hilary Hahn, Moné Hattori is fast emerging as one of the finest violinists of her generation – championed by the Swiss press as “certain to be at the forefront of the world’s best violinists”.
The 2019/2020 concert season represents many significant debuts for Hattori, including DSO Berlin & Robin Ticciati (Shostakovich Violin Concerto No.1), and NHK Symphony Orchestra & Paavo Järvi (Chausson Poème).
Recent highlights have included multi-concert national and international tours as soloist with the Asian Youth Orchestra, European Union Youth Orchestra, Japan Century Symphony Orchestra, NHK Symphony Orchestra, and Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra.
Hattori’s debut recording of works by Shostakovich and Waxman was made with DSO Berlin and released in Japan on Avex Classics in 2016. The disc met with great critical acclaim, and was subsequently released worldwide by ICA Classics in 2019.
