Feel free to enjoy! Living with a concert
File.2 Festa Summer Musa KAWASAKI 2018
(Kosaburo Mori / Music Writer)

The season of Fertival is coming.
Many people think of summer festivals as outdoor concerts of rock and pop, but in fact, the classical music world also loves summer festivals.

Since the classic season starts in autumn, various large and small events are in full bloom during the off-season.
Wagner's own "Bayreuth Festival", led by the "Salzburg Festival" held at Mozart's birthplace, "BBC Proms" where cool English people are usually enthusiastic, at a scenic Swiss resort "Lucerne Music Festival" to be held.
In Japan, some people may think of "Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival (Revised Saito Kinen)".

Meanwhile, orchestra lovers are looking forward to the "Festa Summer Musa KAWASAKI" that has been held since 2005.

Muza Kawasaki Symphony Hall is famous for its good acoustics, which is highly acclaimed by maestro around the world. You can't miss such a luxurious music festival that you can enjoy the performances of major orchestras in the metropolitan area on a daily basis while enjoying the sound.
Moreover, as long as I am happy that the price is relatively low.

I personally picked up three programs from the festival that lasts about three weeks.

First of all, the opening concert of the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra with Muza Kawasaki as the home ground.

《Knot & Tokyo x JAZZ Superstars》
■ July 21st (Sat) 15:00 Start

Jonathan Nott, who is currently the music director of the orchestra, is Toshihide, who has performed as a guest with the world's leading orchestras. This cannot be overlooked because he takes the tact himself.

Moreover, the program is an aggressive Gershwin with jazz pianist Junko Onishi. And Bernstein, who was introduced in this column last time, is excited about the 100th anniversary of his birth. The momentum seems to be suddenly caught in a whirlpool of enthusiasm from the opening.

The second is a program by Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra to listen to French composer Saint-Saens.

Exquisite French II ~ Genius Saint-Saens》
■ August 3rd (Friday) 19:00 Start
* 15: 00 Open / 15: 30-Open rehearsal

Symphony No. 3 "with organ" that creates a thrilling sensuality by fusing the pipe organ and orchestra, which can be said to be the symbol of the hall.
Please get drunk.

And the violin concerto played by Mayuko Kamio, the champion of the 2007 Tchaikovsky Competition.
Please fall in love with it.

Third, I pushed Masaaki Suzuki's recital because I wanted him to entrust himself to the majestic sound of a pipe organ without an orchestra.
It is a concert of all Bach works including "Toccata and Fugue in D minor" that everyone can come up with by humming "Charara ~~".

■ August 11th (Sat / holiday) 18:00 start

Mr. Suzuki is a world-class Bach musician and researcher who has won numerous awards. The soul of Bach emitted from an organ with 5248 pipes will resonate with what you hear as sound = vibration.

No, festivals are really good.
