Jack of all trades is something that applies to Keiko Shichijo. Harpsichord, pianoforte or Romantic keyboard, she turns her hand to them all. Where her selection of repertoire is concerned, she reveals a similar multifaceted quality. Keyboard giants Scarlatti and Mozart will be in the company of the mystical community of the Armenian composer priest Komitas Vardapet. This Bartók of the Caucasus left the world a remarkable oeuvre, in which religion, folksongs and classical elements prevail. Shichijo aims her arrows further towards the misunder stood Catalonian sound poet Mompou (second syllable pronounced as ‘wow’), helping us feel even more in Mediterranean climes.
