Mozart = "fun" and "scary" Utakata no Hito
Feel free to enjoy! Living with a concert
Kozaburo Mori ( music writer)
At the end of each year, I look around every corner of the concert information to find a fun concert where I can listen to Mozart at the beginning of the year.
Speaking of the royal road for classical music fans, they watch the ballet "The Nutcracker" at Christmas and listen to Beethoven's "Ninth" at the end of the year. "Vienna New Year's Concert" on TV with a tipsy feeling on New Year's Day.
But in my case, Mozart for some reason.
Around the beginning of the year, there is a simple reason that I want to be healed by Mozart, who is light and refreshing rather than heavy music, but above all, I touched Mozart's "genius" and as a music fan, I seriously deal with music this year as well. There is also a healthy meaning to go.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
A great composer born in Salzburg, Austria in 1756 and died in Vienna at the young age of 35. Over 600 works, from opera to instrumental and religious songs. There is an anecdote that he was composing a different song in his head while writing notes on the score.
Needless to say, the song is so beautiful.
And its unrestrained personality.
He likes the "not very elegant" joke, and in his later years his income has decreased, and he has a habit of wasting money, and there are still letters asking for debt. By the way, "not very elegantIt seems that a series of letters "words" are also left.
"Why did God give such a popular man a special talent?"
Watching the drama / movie "Amadeus", which depicts the jealousy and conflict of the religious court chapel master Salieri in Vienna, makes me laugh at Mozart's life, albeit with some exaggeration. Or rather, I'm a little surprised.
The masterpiece "Amadeus" is of course fiction, but at that time it was true that there were rumors that Salieri had poisoned Mozart, and he was plagued by rumors until his death.
Poor Salieri. I just realized the "truth of music"!
* Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)
It's hard to put that music into words.
Mozart was also said to "compose as if he were breathing."
The composition is very simple. It is almost in line with the grammar now called "classicalism" established by senior Haydn and others, and I do not feel much about Beethoven's desire for innovation and the difficulty of self-expression. In fact, there are almost no traces of rewriting in the score.
Incredibly beautiful music that is mellow, refreshing.
That's more than enough ...
For example, the second movement of Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major.
The quiet and sad piano solo is followed by an orchestra ensemble that can be heard from some distance. A mysterious investigation of the piano played immediately after that ...
When I was feeling uneasy, I found a slightly fun phrase and a repeating melody at the beginning.
"Music is a temporal art". But when I listen to this song, I feel the opposite. In other words, it seems that Mozart uses 7 minutes to draw a moment.
Various noises such as anxiety and faint hope that come to your heart in an instant.
Mozart don't give me a transferI.
* Recommended one containing Mozart Piano Concerto Nos. 23 & 26. Gulda (piano) & Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (conductor Arnoncourt)
For example, the opera "Don Giovanni".
"Victims" who hunt down the murderer Giovanni as a woman. It's a wonder that they really like and love the hero who they hate and want to kill.
There are some words that are often said about piano pieces.
"Mozart is too easy for children but too difficult for adults"
There's nothing difficult about improving a child's skills, but because of its simplicity, the innocent Mozart is ruined by the innocence of an adult.
In fact, I have come into contact with such performances many times.
Here is one CD. A violin sonata composed by Mozart when he was 10 years old, given the opus number K30. Great performance by Podger and Cooper.
The "Adagio" movement, a beautiful work with an impressive singing violin. There is no "work" that mature Mozart uses to inspire, but what is the sad atmosphere that can be heard behind him? It never becomes negative, it seems to wrap up gently.
Mozart, an innocent boy who tells an anecdote that he told Marie Antoinette, who was 7 years old at the time, "I'll make you my wife when I grow up."I made a lot of music. No, should I say that someone made it?
Ah, Salieri's jealous "natural talent".
Mozart's music has a "demonish" fear.
It's an expression often used by music lovers.
* 6-year-old Mozart in uniform
The emotions that are sleeping in the heart that the listener is not usually aware of, the truth that I do not want to notice yet. Give a glimpse of such a troublesome thing, let it touch it, and make it beautiful and dreamy again with a strange face.
Someone who is unfamiliar to make such music. I'm scared of it.
Is it distant or is it ourselves?
There are two recommended Mozart concerts at the beginning of the year.
"New Year's Concert" at Philia Hall on Saturday, January 11th.
Three piano concertos performed by the master Yukio Yokoyama with NHK Symphony Orchestra members.
No. 23 above will also be played.
Even so, Mozart alone is amazing with 3 songs.

Kawasaki City has long supported domestic industry as an industrial city, but as the industrial structure changed, Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall was born in 2004 as a symbol of Kawasaki City's transformation into a cultural city. In addition, it has contributed to the "town development by music" promoted by Kawasaki City, such as establishing itself as a music hall of fame where performances by famous orchestras are held in recognition of being proud of one of the world's leading acoustics. In addition, the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, which has a franchise tie-up with Kawasaki City, is based in Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall and is active in daily rehearsals, creating and disseminating music art as a top runner in Japan.
Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall provides an excellent acoustic environment that maximizes the potential of the performer, and welcomes all who come to the hall with all their heart. In addition, as a cultural base representing Kawasaki City, we aim to be a hall that will be a "seat" for the transmission and exchange of music culture, in collaboration with orchestras and musicians of various genres.
