Salzburg concert

I went to concert in the Mirable Hall of Mirabell palace in Salzburg.

It was beautiful venue but I do not think it is suitable for listening classic concert. The acoustic is too much echo , so I cannot hear the details time to time. And because of the temperature (they do not have AC), strings goes down many times 😞

I do not think it was the best situation for them to perform.

Other than that ,the baroque violin soloist, Dimitris Karakantas tried his best to bling out his character . It was fun to listen his solo. Sometimes his playing reminds me middle eastern music even though he was playing Vivaldi😄 Well everybody has different taste… I enjoyed to listen that.

I hope Ensemble 1756’s intonation will improve better in the future. I am sure that the room temperture did not help that as well … It was tough for them.

 

Salzburg Music Festival

I went to one of the best concert in my life yesterday at The house for Mozart in Salzburg .

Violinist Renaud Capuçon plays three big pieces with his gorgeous sound especially high tone.

I was moved with the cellist ,Clemens Hagen’s playing.

He is so stable and he has enormous musical passion. And I must say his sound is so big and thick. He used the Strad , but I think he brings out the best sound out of that instrument 👍👍👍👍👍

The pianist , Trifonov has huge tone and he plays all three difficult pieces without any daubt😆

Their characters are different, but when they play together , it mixed so well and became huge one big oil painting with lots of colours.

One old elegant grandfather next to me was closing his eyes and smiling in piece. I never seen the happiest expression before. That makes me feel so warm.

I could tell the audience who were there last night loves music .

I was so happy to be there.😌

Bach Chaconne 50days Day 50

It is Day 50.

I played this Chaconne for somebody who are fighting with cancer.

I saw her dream with my dog. She was healthy in my dream😌

By the way, it was so tough to play through without editing and no acoustic (Japanese Tatami absorb the sound).

I will record this piece when I am ready…

I will continue to practice Chaconne:)

今日で50日。この50日間私の大切な人の為に祈りを込めて弾いた。彼女は今癌と闘っている。

今日彼女が私の犬と一緒にいる夢を見た。彼女は夢の中で元気だった。

ところで、この大曲をエディットなしに畳の上で弾くのは非常に難しかった。

準備ができたらちゃんとレコーディングしよう。

これからもこの曲は弾き続けようと思う。

Bach Chaconne 50days Day 49

One more day to go…

I taught two students who are my old teacher’s students.

When I was little, I studied with my teacher at exactly same studio.

Time flies so fast. I would like to pass on young people what I learned as much as possible.

後一日で50日…。

昨日は昔の師匠のお弟子さん2人にバイオリンを教えた。昔私が師匠から学んだ部屋と同じ部屋で教えた。なんとも言えない懐かしいやら気絶するくらい緊張してた思い出やら蘇った。

今まで学んだ事を若い方々に伝えられるだけ伝えたいと再認識。
