Info for Bach: Violin Concertos
Shunske Sato, one of the world’s most distinctive Baroque violinists, joins Il Pomo d’Oro – an ensemble as imaginative as he is – for Bach.
’Moments of pure joy‘ were what Bachtrack experienced on one of Shunske Sato’s visits to London, and this Japanese-American violinist’s virtuosity and sheer joie de vivre make him an ideal partner for Il Pomo d’Oro in both of Bach’s solo violin concertos.
Sato is positively immersed in Bach: he’s the concertmaster of the Netherlands Bach Society, which is currently engaged in performing Bach’s complete works. But he’s all about reinvention as well as reverence, and Zefira Valova and the livewire period instrument ensemble ll Pomo d’Oro never stint on theatre either.
Shunske Sato was born in Tokyo, Shunske immigrated to the US at the age of four. Resident in The Netherlands, Shunske serves as concertmaster of Concerto Köln and the Netherlands Bach Society, and is often invited as a guest concertmaster for ensembles such as the Freiburger Barockorchester and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. In 2013 he was invited to join the faculty of the Amsterdam Conservatory.
Zefira Valova is currently living in Sofia, Bulgaria. She has been awarded at many national (Bulgarian) and international competitions, such as the Baroque Musik Academy – Blankenburg, Germany.

Il Pomo d'oro
(Tokyo in 1984) actively concertizes on both modern and baroque violin, and is one of the most acclaimed and versatile musicians of his generation. He studied at the Juilliard School of New York and pursued his modern violin studies with Gérard Poulet in Paris, and his baroque violin studies under Mary Utiger at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater München. As a baroque violinist, Shunske servers as concertmaster of both Concerto Köln and the Netherlands Bach Society, and has appeared as soloist with the Orchestra Libera Classica in Japan, Berliner Lautten Compagney, and in 2011 gave the first performance in recent times of Paganini’s second violin concerto on historical instruments with the Academy of Ancient Music. Chamber music plays a regular role in Shunske’s activities, with partners such as Christine Schornsheim, Hidemi Suzuki and Richard Egarr.On the modern violin, Shunske has appeared as soloist with all the major orchestras in Japan, as well as with leading European and American orchestras. Shunske's discography includes Eugène Ysaÿe's Six Sonatas for solo violin, Edvard Grieg’s complete sonatas for violin and piano and Telemann’s 12 Fantasias for solo violin. In addition, Shunske is the first violinist ever to record Niccolò Paganini’s Twenty-Four Caprices for solo violin from the perspective of historically informed performance practice, using gut strings and a historical bow.
