Concert at the Yokohama Museum of Art ~ Monet and Debussy
meet Impressionism ~
(Miyuki Inoue/copywriter)

"100 years from now" being held at the Yokohama Museum of Art. One Friday, when the exhibition was approaching the end, a wonderful performance by the piano and pantomime was performed at the museum after closing. Impressionist collaboration at the Monet & Debussy Museum (C) Akira

Co-sponsored by the Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and the Yokohama Museum of Art, starring Yuko Sanfuna (piano) and Philippe Emard (performance). The "Piano Salon Concert "Nostalgia Paris"" held at Matine Mirai Hall in Matinee on the same day was a fashionable stage with the theme of "Cabaret in Paris" 100 years ago, so there is more expectation for the special stage at night. It takes.
Impressionist collaboration at the Monet & Debussy Museum

As you can see from the subtitle "Meeting Impressionism between Monet and Debussy," the evening section, which was planned in collaboration with the "Monet and the 100 Years Later" exhibition, was prepared with a program that is closer to Impressionism.
The museum, which is surrounded by dusk, has a moist atmosphere that is slightly different from the daytime appearance, which is also attractive.
""Impressionist collaboration at the Monet & Debussy Museum

Prior to the concert, we first attended a mini-lecture by the lead curator, Shintaro Matsunaga, in the lecture room.
The feature of this exhibition is that 25 paintings of Monet and 66 paintings of 26 later generation artists were exhibited in one hall, and some of them were not directly influenced by Monet. It seems that the author's work is also lined up. This is because Monet's innovation and universality can be revealed even more by collecting works that are objectively similar to Monet's, regardless of the artist's intention. .. The curator's point of view at the museum is somewhat interesting. You have to visit again at the museum's opening time and look for the "monetness" in the works of contemporary artists!
When the lecture was finished and the venue was ready, we moved to the Grand Gallery.

Unlike the daytime when natural light overflows, the night gallery illuminated by blue light has a mysterious atmosphere like water.
Mr. Sanshun appeared in a blue dress, and Mr. Emar in white overalls in the image of light. Debussy and other piano and pantomime performances with a French spirit were performed.
Play Monet along with Debussy, read "I am Monet" on Schumann's "Troumerei," and even show off your own poems. With the beautiful melody, you will be fascinated by the variety of Emar.
It seems that Debussy himself hated being called "impressionist," but I think there is no doubt that floating music goes well with Monet's paintings.

The one-hour stage ends in no time.
Encore is Edit Piaf's "L'hymne a l'amour". When you listen to Mr. Sanshun's piano and Mr. Emar's song, you may feel like you are on the street corner of Paris. In terms of Monet's work, it is an early work such as "Capsine Boulevard".
Again, I feel like I found "another Monet".

This event has ended.
