Go, see, feel the world of art
Concert at the Yokohama Museum of Art-Monet and Debussy
meet the Impressionists-
(Miyuki Inoue / Copywriter)

"Monet 100 years from now" held at Yokohama Museum of Art. On the Friday, when the exhibition was nearing the end, a wonderful performance with piano and mime was performed at the museum after closing. (C) Akira

Co-hosted by the Yokohama Minatomirai Hall, which celebrated its 20th anniversary this year, and the Yokohama Museum of Art, appearances are Yuko Mifune (piano) and Philip Emar (performance). The “Piano Salon Concert“ Nostalgia Paris ”” was held in Matinee at the Yokohama Minatomirai Hall on the same day, and it was a stylish stage with the theme of “Paris cabaret” 100 years ago, so expect even more for the night special stage It takes.

The evening section, which was planned in conjunction with the "Monet 100 Years Later" exhibition, had a program based on Gugu and the Impressionists, as can be seen from the subtitle "Meet the Impressionists of Monet and Debussy".
The art museum wrapped in the dusk has a moist atmosphere that is slightly different from the appearance of daytime, which is also attractive.

Prior to the concert, we first attended a mini-lecture by Chief Curator Shintaro Matsunaga in the lecture room.
The feature of this exhibition is that Monet's 25 paintings and 66 works by 26 later generations were exhibited in one place, and some of them were "not directly influenced by Monet." It seems that there are also works by the writer. This is due to the idea that Monet's innovativeness and universality will emerge more by collecting works that seem to be objectively subtle to Monet, regardless of the artist's intention. . The curator's point of view at the museum is somewhat interesting. You have to visit again during the opening hours of the museum and look for "Monetness" in the works of contemporary artists!
When the lecture is over and the venue is ready, move to the Grand Gallery.

At night, the gallery is illuminated by blue light and has a mysterious atmosphere like water.
threeFuna appears in a blue dress, and Emar appears in white overalls in the image of light. Focusing on Debussy, the piano and pantomime performed a performance with a French spirit.
He played Monet to Debussy, read "I'm Monet" on Schumann's "Treumerei", and performed his own poems. Along with beautiful melodies, she is fascinated by Emar's variety.
Debussy himself hated being called the "Impressionist", but he thought that floating music would go well with Monet's paintings.

The one-hour stage is over in no time.
Encore is Edith Piaf's "L'hymne a l'amour". Listening to Mifune's piano and Emar's song, you will be caught in the illusion of being on a street corner in Paris. In Monet's work, is it an early work such as "Capsine Boulevard"?
Here again, I feel like I found another Monet.
