Mozart = “Fun” and “Scared” Utakata
Feel free to enjoy! Living with a concert
Kosaburo Mori ( Music Writer)
At the end of each year, I look around the concert information to find a fun concert where I can listen to Mozart at the beginning of the year.
Speaking of classical music fans, they watch ballet "The Nutcracker" at Christmas and listen to Beethoven's "Ninth" at the end of the year. "Vienna Phil New Year Concert" on TV with a feeling of tipsy New Year.
But in my case, it was Mozart for some reason.
There is a simple reason why I want to be healed by light and refreshing Mozart rather than heavy music around the beginning of the year, but above all, I touched Mozart's "genius" and as a music fan, I seriously associated with music this year as well. It also has the sane meaning of going.
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.
Born in Salzburg, Austria in 1756, he was a great composer who died in Vienna at the age of 35. Over 600 works from opera to instrumental and religious songs. There is also an anecdote that I wrote different notes in my mind while writing notes on the score.
Needless to say, the song is beautiful everywhere.
And that personality is forever.
He liked the joke "not very classy", and in the latter years of his life, he lost money and wasted money, leaving him with a letter asking for debt. Incidentally, "I'm not very elegant.It seems that letters of the "words" have been left.
"Why did God give such a man such a special talent?"
When you watch the movie "Amadeus", which depicts the jealousy and conflict of the pious Vienna Chief of the Court Salieri in Vienna, you can understand Mozart's life well and laugh, even though it is quite exaggerated. Or rather, I'm surprised.
The masterpiece "Amadeus" is of course a fiction, but at that time there was a rumor that Salieri poisoned Mozart, and he was plagued by the rumor until his death.
Poor Salieri. Just notice the "truth of music"!
* Antonio Salieri (1750-1825)
It is difficult to put that music into words.
Mozart was said to "compose like breathing".
The configuration is very simple. It is almost in line with the grammar that is now known as "classicalism" established by seniors Haydn and others, and I can hardly feel Beethoven's desire for innovation and the difficulty of self-expression. In fact, he says that he can hardly see the rewritten traces in the score.
A mellow, refreshing and incredibly beautiful music.
That's enough, though...
For example, the second movement of the Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major.
A quiet and sad piano solo, followed by an orchestra ensemble that can be heard from some distance. Immediately after that, a mysterious investigation of the piano played...
When I felt a little uncomfortable, this time the phrase was a little more fun, and the melody at the beginning repeated.
"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 annoyances such as anxiety and faint hope that suddenly come and go to your heart.
Mozart, please give me a changeYes.
*A recommended piece that includes Mozart Piano Concerto Nos. 23 & 26. Gurda (piano) & Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (conductor of Harnoncourt)
For example, the opera "Don Giovanni".
"Victims" hunt down the murderer Giovanni as a woman. It's a wonder that they really like and love the hero who hates and wants to kill them.
There are words that are often said about piano songs.
"It's too easy for kids but too difficult for adults"
There is nothing difficult about improving children's skills, but because of their simplicity, innocent Mozart can be ruined by the adult distraction.
In fact, I've been exposed to such performances many times.
Here is one CD. A violin sonata composed by Mozart when he was ten, given the work number K30. Great performance by Podger and Cooper.
The "Adagio" movement, a beautiful piece with a loosely sung violin. There is no “waza” that mature Mozart uses to inspire, but I wonder what a sardly mood you can hear behind you. It never becomes negative, and it seems to be wrapped gently.
Mozart, an innocent boy who tells the story of seven-year-old Marie Antoinette, "I'll make it my wife when I grow up"I made a lot of music. No, should I say that someone has made it for me?
Ah, Salieri's jealous “natural talent”.
Mozart's music has a "demonish" fear.
It is an expression often used by musicians.
* A 6-year-old Mozart wearing a big bow
The feelings that the listener usually does not realize, the feelings that are sleeping deep inside the heart, the truth that I do not want to notice yet. A glimpse of such awkward things and a touch of touch will make you feel beautiful and dreamy again with a strange face.
Someone who knows how to make such music. I'm scared of that.
Is it a distant place or is it ourselves?
There are two Mozart concerts that we recommend at the beginning of the year.
"New Year Concert" at Philia Hall on Saturday, January 11th.
Three piano concertos performed by master, Yukio Yokoyama with N Hibiki members.
Number 23 above will also be played.
Even so, it is amazing that there are only three songs with Mozart alone.

Kawasaki City has long supported domestic industries as an industrial city, but the Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall was established in 2004 as a symbol of the transformation of Kawasaki City into a cultural city amid the changing industrial structure. It has contributed to Kawasaki City's “town development with music” by being recognized as one of the world's leading acoustics and establishing itself as a music hall where performances by famous orchestras are performed. In addition, the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, which has formed a franchise alliance with Kawasaki City, is active at the Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall, including daily rehearsals, to create and transmit music art as a top runner in Japan.
The Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall provides an excellent acoustic environment that maximizes the potential of the performer and welcomes everyone who comes to the hall with all their hearts. As a representative cultural center of Kawasaki City, we aim to be a “place” for the dissemination and exchange of music culture by working hand in hand with orchestras and musicians of various genres.
