If all the greatest music festivals invite her for important creations, if she has signed an exclusive contract with Boosey & Hawkes, maybe it is by chance. Or is she definitely this new marvel of contemporary music often discussed in superlative terms by the finest connoisseurs? Keiko Harada, Japanese citizen and musical globe-trotter, could perhaps become one of the major female composers of the XXIth century. Cypres is glad to welcome her in the prestigious Ictus collection, more and more indispensable as a very high level testimony of the present state of music.
