These are very high emotions and full freedom of self expression.
Serge Kozlovsky
And with this offering, Masako proves herself worthy of the echelon of preeminent pianists such as David Lanz, Jim Brickman, and Liz Story.
Raj Manoharan
“Wildflowers” is a piano solo with the simple beauty and grace of its inspiration.
Kathy Parsons

"Call of the Mountains" is the second release from pianist/composer Masako. Equal in beauty to her debut, "Masako," "Call of the Mountains" was also recorded at Will Ackerman’s Imaginary Road Studio in Vermont and features guest artists such as Premik, Noah Wilding, Jeff Oster, Will Ackerman, Eugene Friesen, Tony Levin, and Jeff Haynes on several tracks. Twelve of the sixteen tracks are elegant piano solos that showcase Masako’s poetic playing style as well as her graceful touch. There are many self-taught musicians whose work I dearly love, but when an artist such as Masako steps in with a lifetime of rigorous training, there is a palpable difference and often, at least for me, a much bigger “WOW!” factor. It has nothing to do with showmanship or playing speed (usually), but the effortless command of the instrument to successfully convey whatever that artist seeks to express.

In her liner notes, Masako explains the origins of this new music. Living in the northeastern mountains of the US, she often has reasons to drive south through the Hudson Valley and Catskill Mountains to New York City. The ongoing changes in the mountains, river, and sky keep the drive interesting, and Masako says that whenever she walks in the woods she encounters something special. “This album is a tribute to these mountains that I love.”

"Call of the Mountains" begins with “Dawn,” a lovely piano solo meant to be both powerful and sensitive and to convey a sense of hope. Masako is successful on all accounts. “Kindness from Strangers” has a graceful flow that expresses “trail magic,” unexpected kindness from total strangers - a favorite!

The beauty of the our world
Inside you
Just have a look

When you want to return your peace of mind, when you are seeking to find a place within you which is always in harmony, even if you are aiming to just relax and get some rest, just listen to this music and it will lead you into uncharted territory, where unbelievable beauty lives. This is such an unusual place. Where is it? Perhaps it is somewhere deep in the mountains, or maybe it is inside your heart. But the incredibly sincere music of Masako certainly will take you there ...it will bring you into your real home…

The music of Masako is like the free flow of the stream, pouring out its pure water on the longing earth. These are very high emotions and full freedom of self expression.

The album “Call of the Mountains” is the second project of the gifted musician. One can say that Masako becomes not just one more star, but the leader in the new age music genre. As was her first album, this release was produced by Grammy-winning guitarist and the founder of Windham Hill Records Will Ackerman and it continues traditions of first-class acoustic music. “Call of the Mountains” will be gourmet food for any new age and contemporary instrumental music lovers.

What else can be said about the new album of Masako? Just listen to this music, feel it, plunge into it deeper and deeper and it will purify your heart from all superfluous because it is a direct conversation between you and the artist who has so much beauty in her heart.
