File.9   Mozart
Saburo Mori ( music writer)

At the end of each year, look around the concert information to find a fun concert to listen to Mozart at the beginning of the year.
Speaking of classical music fans, they watch the ballet “Nutcracker” at Christmas and listen to Beethoven's “Ninth” at the end of the year. New Year's Day is a tipsy TV show “Vienna Phil New Year Concert”.
But in my case Mozart.
At the beginning of the year, there is a simple reason that he wants to be healed by Mozart that is lighter and refreshing than heavy music, but above all, he touches Mozart's “genius” and as a music fan, this year, he is serious about music. There is also a healthy meaning to follow.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
A great composer who was born in Salzburg, Austria in 1756 and died in Vienna at the age of 35. Over 600 works from opera to instrumental and religious songs. There is an anecdote about writing different music in the head while writing notes on the music.

Needless to say, the song is so beautiful.
And that personality is forever.
He likes to joke “not very elegant,” he says he has lost money in his later years, and there are still some letters that ask for debt. For your information, "Not very elegantIt seems that the letters of “Leaf” are left behind.

"Why did God give special talent to such a popular man?"

If you look at the drama “Amadeus”, a drama and film depicting the samurai and conflict of Vienna ’s court leader, Sarieri, you can understand and laugh at Mozart's life. I'm a little surprised.
The masterpiece “Amadeus” is of course fiction, but at that time, it was true that Sarieri was poisoned by Mozart, and he was troubled by the rumor until he died.
Poor Sarieri. Just have noticed the “truth of music”!

* Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)

“Genius” Mozart.
It's hard to put that music into words.
Mozart is said to be “composing as if breathing”.
The configuration is very simple. It is almost in line with the grammar called “Classicism” established by senior Haydn and others, and the desire for innovativeness and the difficulty of self-expression that Beethoven aimed at are hardly felt. In fact, there are almost no reprinted marks on the score.

It's gorgeous, refreshing, and beautiful music.
That's already enough, but ...

For example, the second movement in piano concerto No. 23 in A major.
A quiet and sad piano solo followed by an orchestra ensemble that can be heard from some distance. A mysterious study of the piano played right after that ...
If you feel a little anxious, this time it's a rather fun phrase and a repeating melody.
"Music is a temporal art". But when I listen to this song, I feel the opposite. In other words, it seems that Mozart used 7 minutes to draw a moment.
Various buzz such as anxiety and faint hope coming to the heart in an instant.
Mozart won't give you a sign.
* One recommended piece that includes Mozart Piano Concerto Nos. 23 & 26. Gurda (piano) & Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (Conducted by Arnoncourt)

For example, the opera “Don Giovanni”.
“Victims” who pursue the murderer Giovanni as a woman. It's a wonder that they really like and love the hero who hates and wants to kill.

There are words often said about piano songs.
“Mozart is too easy for children but too difficult for adults”
There is nothing difficult about improving children's skills, but because of their simplicity, innocent Mozart is ruined when adults get involved.
In fact, I've been exposed to such a performance.

There is one CD here. Violin sonata composed by Mozart when he was 10 years old, given the work number K30. A great performance by Podger and Cooper.
The “Adagio” movement, a beautiful piece with an impressive violin singing. There is no “was” that inspires mature Mozart, but what is the sad atmosphere as if it was heard behind. It's never negative, it's like wrapping gently.
Mozart, an innocent boy who told the 7-year-old Marie Antoinette that he said, “I'll make it my wife when I grow up,” is like this musicI made it. No, should someone say that they made it?
Ah, “natural talent” dressed as Sarieri.
Mozart's music has a “Demonish?” Fear.
It is an expression often used by music savvy people.
* 6-year-old Mozart wearing a big dress

The emotions that the listeners are not usually aware of, the feelings of sleeping in the back of their hearts, the truth that they still do not want to notice. A glimpse of such a nuisance can be glimpsed and touched to make it look beautiful and dreamy with an unknown face.
Someone who doesn't know how to make such music. It ’s scary.
Is it far away or are we ourselves?

so.
There are two Mozart concerts recommended at the beginning of the year.

January 11 (Saturday) Philia Hall's “New Year's Concert”.
Three piano concertos performed by famous singer Yukio Yokoyama with N Hibiki members.
The above 23rd is also played.
Even so, it is amazing that only 3 songs by Mozart.

    Kawasaki City has long supported the domestic industry as an industrial city, but Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall was born in 2004 as a symbol of Kawasaki City transforming into a cultural city as the industrial structure changes. It has been recognized as one of the world's leading acoustics, and has contributed to Kawasaki's “town development with music,” such as establishing a position as a music hall where performances by famous orchestras are performed. The Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, which has a franchise partnership with Kawasaki City, is working on the Musa Kawasaki Symphony Hall, including daily rehearsals, and creating and transmitting music art as the top runner in Japan.

    The Musa Kawasaki Symphony Hall provides an excellent acoustic environment that maximizes the potential of performers and welcomes all who come to the hall with all their heart. As a cultural center that represents Kawasaki City, we will work with orchestras and musicians of various genres to aim for a hall that serves as a seat for the transmission and exchange of music culture.
