Meet the Impressionists of Monet and Debussy

"100 years from then on" being held at the Yokohama Museum of Art. One feast of the show was over, and on Friday, at the museum after closing, the piano and pantomime performed a wonderful performance. (C) Akira

Performed co-sponsored by Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall and the Yokohama Museum of Art, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, with Yuko Mitaka (piano) and Philip Emar (performance). "Piano salon concert" Nostalgic Sari "held at the Yokohama Minatomirai Hall on the same day at Matinee was a fashionable stage with the theme of" Cabaret in Paris "100 years ago, so there are further expectations for a special stage at night It takes

The night section, which was planned in collaboration with the "Monet 100th Century" exhibition, has a program that is close to the Impressionists, as can be seen from the subtitle "Meet the Impressionists of Monet and Debussy".
An art museum surrounded by dusk has a moist atmosphere slightly different from the daytime atmosphere, which is also attractive.

Prior to the concert, first listen to the mini-lecture of Chief Curator Shintaro Matsunaga in the lecture room.
The feature of this exhibition is that 25 pieces of Monet's paintings and 66 pieces by 26 artists of later generations are exhibited in one hall, and some of them are "not directly influenced by Monet" It seems that the works of the artists are also lined up. This is based on the idea that the innovativeness / universality of Monet may be more pronounced by collecting works that can objectively be perceived as something that is familiar to Monet, regardless of the author's intention. . The point of view of the museum curator is somewhat interesting. I have to visit again at the opening time of the museum and look for the "Monet" in the works of contemporary artists!
When the lecture is over and the venue is ready, we move to the Grand Gallery.

Unlike the daytime when natural light overflows, the night gallery, illuminated by blue light, has a mysterious atmosphere like water.
threeAoi appears in a blue dress, and Emar appears in a white overalls with an image of light. A performance with a French-style Esprit, with piano and pantomime developed, centered on Debussy.
Play Monet to Debussy, read Schomann's Troimelai, read aloud "I am Monet", or even show your own poetry. Along with the beautiful melody, you are fascinated by Emar's variety.
Debussy himself disliked being called an "Impressionist", but I thought that floating music would be compatible with Monet's paintings.

The stage of about one hour ends in no time.
Encore is Edit Piaf's' L'hymne a l'amour (love song). If you listen to Mitaka's piano and Emar's song, you may be caught by the illusion of being in a street corner of Paris. In terms of Monet's work, is it an early work such as "Capsine Avenue"?
I felt that I found another monet again here.

    Yokohama Museum of Art was founded in 1989 aimed to contribute to the appreciation of modern and contemporary art, as well as to citizens’ creative activities and enrich civic culture. As a museum of an international port town, this place is mainly focusing on arts dated after 1859, the year when the port of Yokohama was opened, and is constantly collecting works and holding exhibitions. Among them, there is an excellent photograph collection unique to Yokohama, one of the birthplaces of photography in Japan. (Photo: Yasuyuki Kasagi) "
