Candlelight Recital -speech-

Thank you for joining our recital last night. As usual, my speech is far from perfect😅,so I will write down what I wanted to share with you last night.

Hope you enjoyed our performance. We, performers,audience and stuffs make our recital together,so every concert is different.

Everytime I met new people, I always say

‘I’ve received so much support (experience/wisdom) from my teachers .And it is now my turn to pass it on to the new generation.’.

I have been saying this for many years and now, I am surrounded by new friends and supporters who understand my wish and kindly offer me their support. Last night’s concert,I couldn’t Accomplish without their help. This is really priceless and I appreciate so much. This English line was made by my great friend as well. She understands me so well, and help me whenever I am in trouble .💖

smartphone and internet have really changed our lifestyles. We can do a lot of things without seeing anybody or going anywhere.

But because of that, I believe the salon concert like last night is a good opportunity to find new friends who enjoy live music and direct conversation. We do not have to talk nothing so serious . We can talk  ‘ today’s weather is wonderful, shall we take a walk little bit together ?’ Something like that. Or ‘ you look great !’ Is fine as well. Those little conversation make you feel warm 💓

I hope I can connect people. I hope I can build on this salon concert better and better with everyone in the room.

See you all very soon.

リサイタルにご参加頂きありがとうございます。

コンサートは演者、観客の皆様、そしてこのコンサートをより良いものにと手を貸してくださった
スタッフ一同の全員で完結するものだと思っております。
今日はいかがでしたか?
このコンサートを開けるまでに7年が経ちました。
’’今まで’師匠に学んだ価値のあるものを次世代につないで行きたい’’
とみなさんにお話しして回ってたら、気づくと素晴らしい方々に巡り会い、一緒に何かやろうと賛同してくださる方が増えました。
今日ここにもその方々が沢山いらしております。
バイオリンを弾いて、やりたいことをお話ししていたら素晴らしい方々と一緒にコンサートが出来るようになりました。これがプライスレス、お金で買えない大切なものでしょう。
違う職種の方から良い影響を受けています。叱ってくださる方もいます。そんな方々とたわいもない話をすることが、生きていく上でいかに大事か痛感致しております。
昔、ヨーロッパでサロンコンサートが流行っておりました。その訳が今はわかります。
色々便利なものが出てきた反面、人との交流が激減した今の時代に必要なものはこういう機会に好きなものを語れる人たちと出会うことなのでは?と思います。心が温かくなるんですよね。
このコンサートで、そしてこれからも続けるサロンコンサートで、いろんなご縁があったら良いな、そのお手伝いができたら良いなと思っております。
この機会に賛同してくださる方が増えたら、一緒にコンサートを作っていけたら良いなと思っております。
今後ともどうぞよろしくお願いします。

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。
