Last December, I was invited to Mr. Junichi Ito's recital at the Civic Hall in Toyosu, Tokyo, and listened carefully to Mr. Ito's performance. It was a program of Chopin and Saint-Saëns, but the more you listened to it, the more you were drawn into it. I still remember that feeling of elation with applause.
I knew that Chopin's performance was wonderful, with his wonderful fingerwork, beautiful pianissimo and reverberation, but Saint-Saens' performance was also wonderful, and his taste in music was outstanding, and my heart was intoxicated by music. was We decided to hold a recital in Kamakura with the hope that many people would listen to such a wonderful performance.
If you come and listen to Mr. Ito's "music", which was highly praised by the judges at the 2019 Japan Chopin Competition, you will surely become a fan in no time. I am excitedly looking forward to the recital.
