File.2 Festa Summer Muska KAWASAKI 2018
(Miki Moriho / Music writer)

The season of Feltivael is coming.
As for the summer festival, I think many people think of rock and pops' outdoor concerts, but in fact the classical music world likes summer festivals as well.

The classic season is sometimes called autumn opening, and various large and small events flower using season off.
At the Mozart's birthplace, the "Salzburg Festival" will be held at the "Bayreuth Music Festival", which Wagner created himself, "BBC Proms", a cool Briton enthusiastically celebrating, in a scenic Swiss resort area "Lucerne Music Festival" to be held.
Some people think of "Sage Ozawa Matsumoto Festival (Saito · Kinen reformed)" in Japan.

Meanwhile, the orchestra lover always looks forward to "Festa Summer Musa KAWASAKI" which has been held since 2005.

Speaking of Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall, it is famous for its acclaimed acclaim from the world's Maestro. There is no way to listen to such luxurious music festival so that you can enjoy the performance of the major orchestras in the metropolitan area on a daily basis while enjoying the sound.
Moreover, as long as it is pleasing to have a relatively low fee.

From the festival which will be held for about three weeks, I pick up three programs personally.

First of all, the opening concert of Tokyo Symphony Orchestra with Muza Kawasaki as home ground.

"Knot & TOKYO x JAZZ superstars"
■ July 21 (Sat) 15: 00 opening

Currently, Jonathan Knott, who is the music director of the band, is Toshihide who has been performing guest performances with the world's leading orchestras. Because he himself takes a tact, he can not miss this.

Moreover, the program is an aggressive Gershwin with jazz pianist · Junko Onishi. And last time I introduced this column, birth 100Burnstein rises with age. It is a momentum that is suddenly getting caught up in an enthusiastic swirl from the opening.

The second is a program by Kanagawa Phil to listen to French composer Saint – Saëns.

"Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra
Excellent French Ⅱ ~ Genius Saint-Saëns "
■ Friday, August 3 (Fri) 19: 00 opening
* 15: 00 opening / 15: 30 ~ public rehearsal

The fusion of pipe organ and orchestra which can be said as a symbol of the hall creates thrilling sensuality Symphony No. 3 "With organ".
Please get drunk.

And the violin concerto played by the winner of the 2007 Tchaikovsky Compete, Mayuko Kamio.
Please listen to me.

The third is to push the recital of Masaaki Suzuki from the desire that you want to entrust yourself to the majestic resonance of the pipe organ without an orchestra.
"Chalara ~ ~" and everyone will come to pin it "Toccata and FuIt is a concert of Bach work of all songs including "Mini giga".

"Masaaki Suzuki Pipe Organ Recital
Midsummer Bach III "
■ August 11 (Saturday · Holiday) Opening at 18: 00
* 17: 00 opening / 17: 20 ~ lobby concert

Suzuki is a researcher as a world-famous award-winning Bach musician. The soul of Bach, which emanates from an organ with 5248 pipes, will echo the heart of something that is heard as sound = vibration.

No, the festival is really nice.

Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall

Kawasaki City has long supported the industry as an industrial city, but as the industrial structure has changed, Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall was born in 2004 as a symbol that Kawasaki city will transform into a cultural city. And, being valued to be proud of the world's leading acoustics, it has contributed to the "city development by music" that Kawasaki City can advance, such as establishing the position as a music hall of fame where performances by prominent orchestras are performed. Also, the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, which has a franchise alliance with Kawasaki City, is based in the Musa Kawasaki Symphony Hall, including daily rehearsals, and creates and transmits music art as a top runner in Japan.

Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall provides excellent acoustic environment that maximizes the potential of the performer and welcomes all those who come to the hall with full heart. In addition, as a representative cultural base of Kawasaki City, we aim to become a "hut" that serves as a "seat" for dissemination and exchange of music culture with hands with orchestras and musicians of various genres.
