File.1 Bernstein 100th Anniversary Concert
(Kosaburo Mori / Music Writer)
Speaking of Bernstein, for classical music fans, he is a master conductor and composer who divided his popularity with Karajan. It is a major existence among majors.
If you don't listen to classical music, you might know who composed the musical "West Side Story".
The stage, which premiered in New York in 1957, was later made into a movie and became a huge hit worldwide. Bernstein composed all of the songs, from the insert song "Tonight" that sang youth to the danceable songs that used abundant popular music such as blues and jazz.
There is no doubt that he was at the forefront of the world's art culture at that time, along with Jerome Robbins, who was in charge of the draft and choreography.
On the other hand, he conducts the Vienna Philharmonic and plays the ultimate Marler and Beethoven. Enthusiastic classical music fans.
This person's activities are really borderless. And all of them are hot and straightforward, but they shake the heart.
The keywords are cool and cool!
Bernstein has run through the United States, which faces racial discrimination, the Vietnam War, and various social problems, with the times. His presence, full of vitality, is, for me, the number one American hero alongside Elvis Presley.
Such Bernstein is also the 100th anniversary of his birth. To commemorate this, the Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year, will hold a concert. It's a wonderful project with a lot of congratulations.
"Symphonic Dance", which is a collection of the main songs of the famous songs "Tonight" and "West Side Story", is also planned, so even those who do not know Bernstein should be able to enjoy it.
* It is not a musical performance (Editor's note)
And it is Michiyoshi Inoue who is as cool and energetic as Lenny (nicknamed Bernstein) who conducts the masterpieces of the gems. Having studied under Bernstein, it is true that he has prepared a program that fully conveys Bernstein's charm as a composer, not just "West Side Story".
At the age of 70, not only his passion for music, but also his humorous narrative has been further refined, and he has captured the hearts of the listeners.
