File.10 Composition by Beethoven "The Grand Trio"
Kosaburo Mori ( Music Writer)

In 2020, this year is the anniversary of Beethoven's 250th birthday. Along with that, CD sales, events, concerts, etc. are being actively planned.
Yeah! Ludwig, as popular as ever!

It's been 50 years since the Beatles disbanded. I also listen to pre-war Bruce Mann recordings, but there is one decisive difference between them and Beethoven's music.
Anyway, Beethoven was active over 200 years ago. There is no recording of the musician at that time, let alone the person himself. (Edison invented the cylindrical coat in 1877, about 50 years after Beethoven's death)
In other words, the musicians face the score left over, desperately analyze it, interpret it in their own way, and try to get closer to the essence of Beethoven. The resulting music often has completely different tempos and strengths depending on the performer. Basically, it's a husual performance based on the same score ... It's up to each person to find it interesting or not real.

By the way, when I only listened to rock music, of course the latter.

However, since I woke up to Beethoven's wonderfulness like Hoshino Youth, I was completely absorbed in the fun of playing classical music.

The suddenly appearing "Hoshino Youth" is one of the characters in Haruki Murakami's novel "Kafuka on the beach".
Hoshino youth, who had little interest in classical music until then, meditation while listening to the music that was playing at the coffee shop. And I really like the song. At that time, it took a song called Beethoven's "The Grand Duke Trio" played by "Million Dollar Trio".
This song will play an important role in the subsequent story.

Murakami Haruki? "Chemical reaction" of music

Piano trio No. 7 composed by Beethoven.
It is also called the "Duke Trio" because it was devoted to the defender, a disciple of piano and composition, and the ruling Grand Prince Rudolf, a 17-year-old younger nobleman who was probably close to him.
Composed in 1811. This is Beethoven's last work in this genre, and it has been given the reputation of being "the masterpiece of a piano trio", which is full of elegant melody and scale.
Well, it can be said that it is a relatively plain existence in Beethoven, but it was surprising that there was a special corner of "The Grand Duke Trio" at the CD shop when "Kafuka on the beach" was released. Awesome, Haruki-sama's influence!

CafeThe "1 million dollar trio" that flowed in the tea shop is a popular name for the trio by the great stars of the time, Rubinstein on the piano, Heifetz on the violin, and Fireman on the cello. I wonder if "million dollars" is a gala.

It was recorded in 1941, "The Grand Duke Trio", but the public opinion is very different. Hey, I'm not really close to each other and the art style is too different, but I'm just good and I don't feel like Beethoven going deep ...
As an individual, I am definitely affirmative. After all, the light tempo is wonderful. Perfect for this song. The recordings are old, but the beauty of the Heifetz violin is well received!
When I listened in the car imitating youth Hoshino, I listened to the 3rd movement Andante, and the following car urged my attention with a horn. Let's all be careful.

Murakami Haruki? "Chemical reaction" of music

It's a rare opportunity to listen to it in the live performances of "The Grand Duke Trio", but since this year is a memorial year, several concerts are scheduled. Among them, the one I would definitely like to visit is the concert entitled "The Grand Prince of Beethoven" held in Philia Hall in June.
Performed by the master solo concert master, Yasuhisa Ishida and other masters of the Kanagawa Philharmonic. I'm really excited to see if only Kusesha Ishida will attack you with a lot of mastery performances or let me play with ensemble moist.

Even so, the selection of music by hardcore music fan Haruki Murakami is exquisite.
"Does music have the power to change people? The song that draws out the line "" is not a profound string quartet, it is not a shocking "fate" or "9th", but a "Duke Trio". It's not a gigantic performance, it's a million dollar trio.

250 years of Beethoven's birth.
The announcement of "Kafuka on the beach" was in 2002.
I wonder if the people who met "The Grand Duke Trio" in Kafka still listen to it from time to time.
18 years.
It's time for the newborn baby to become a fine adult. Good grief.

It's been a long time since I was no longer an enthusiastic reader of Murakami, but the CD of "The Grand Trio" reaches out several times a year. And, if there is a concert that seems interesting, I will go there.
After the concert, have a few drinks with your friends at your favorite bar or tavern.
I'm Tsukimashiki "living with a concert."
