File.3 Claude Debussy 100 Years Room Retrospective Retrospective
(Mitsuro Morimitsu / Music writer)

Claude Debussy (1862-1918), a large French composer famous for the Symphonic Poem "Ocean", decided to compose "the six sonatas for various instruments" in the last years. It was also to counter the German composer who proudly prospered at that time, to inform the world of the splendor of French music.

Although it became a serious serious export from the very birth, at the time, even now, as for the composer of the classical music world, most German people. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, as well as Brahms, Wagner, Mendelssohn and so on, if you mention it casually, everything is going to be a German composer.
Although it is a slightly rough way of saying, German music has caught up with things such as structure and form. As soon as the "format" and the like seems to be visible, "Wow cutter!" Becomes matter of concern. And it is "fun!" "I can tell!" In fact, I also love myself.

So what is Debussy's music?
I remember the impression of my first listening even now.

I do not quite understand.
It is fluffy.
What a fashionable one?
Glittering and beautiful.
Music that can not be called at all.
But, veryI feel free … it was fresh.

It is certain that there is a nuance reminiscent of French Impressionist painter's touch.
If Monet was trying to portray light until the passage of light or elapsed time in a fixed plane called a painting, Debussy is a colorful rich, three-dimensional image of the sensibility of what he listen by time art of music It can be said that he left. (By the way, Debussy himself seems to be disliked to be called "Impressionists")
Contemporary music Toru Takemitsu, Jazz pianist Bill Evans. The music of people influenced by Debussy is free and can not be caught, it is beautiful as she is transparent.

In commemoration of 100 years after Debussy 's death, a concert covering chamber music works will be held. The venue is a pleasant room for chamber music to enjoy small ensemble, Philia Hall in Aoba-ku, Yokohama.
The instruments used are violin, viola, cello, piano, flute, and harp. From solo performance to ensemble by up to five people, it is a program that can enjoy sounds and sounds in various combinations.
It is the familiar series of "Philia Hall's famous series" Encounter with the goddess (Muse) "regular personality, and of course those who are good at French music. It seems that you can imagine that Debussy who did not dislike women (rather it is said to have had much trouble) is happy with Ninmari in the other world.

While aiming at 6 songs, the sonatas of later years who eventually died without composing only three songsOf course it is played.

Yukie Ueno (C) Akira Muto, Yoshiko Kawamoto, Naoko Yoshino (C) Akira Muto

Personal recommendation is "Sonata for flute, viola and harp".
It is a mysterious main melody with a slightly inaccessible atmosphere.
I try hard by the ears.
Anxiety when I lost sight.
And the feeling of relief I feel when I emerge again from where.
If you let this song be played in the world, Naoko Yoshino's wonderful harp virtuosity. Enjoy it!
