File.3 Chamber Music Retrospective Exhibition 100 Years After Claude Debussy's Death
(Kosaburo Mori / Music Writer)

Claude Debussy (1862-1918), a great French composer famous for his symphonic poem "The Sea", decided to compose "Six Sonatas for Various Instruments" in his last years. It was also to counter the prosperous German composers of the time and to show the world the splendor of French music.

It was a serious writing from the beginning, but at that time and even now, most of the composers in the classical music world are of German descent. Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, as well as Brahms, Wagner, Mendelssohn, etc., all seem to be German composers.
German music is a bit rough, but I was particular about the structure and form. When I can see the "form" a little, I'm worried about "Wakatta!". And that became "fun!" And "talking!", And in fact I love it too.

So what is Debussy's music?
I still remember how I felt when I first heard it.

I'm not sure.
It's fluffy.
Is it fashionable?
Glitter and beautiful.
Elusive music.
But I feel very free ... it was fresh.

Certainly there are nuances reminiscent of the touch of a French Impressionist painter.
If Monet tried to depict the transition of light and the passage of time in the fixed plane of painting, Debussy would have a colorful and three-dimensional image of what he hears through the temporal art of music. It can be said that he made him come and go. (By the way, Debussy himself seems to have hated being called an "Impressionist")
Toru Takemitsu of contemporary music, jazz pianist Bill Evans. The music of those influenced by Debussy is also free and elusive, and is transparent and beautiful.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of Debussy's death, a concert covering chamber music works will be held. The venue is the Philia Hall in Aoba-ku, Yokohama, which is a chamber music hall of fame that is perfect for enjoying an ensemble with a small number of people.
The instruments used are violin, viola, cello, piano, flute, and harp. It is a program where you can enjoy various combinations of sounds and sounds, from solo performances to ensembles by up to five people.
The performers are all the talented regulars of Philia Hall's famous series "Encounter with the Goddess (Muse)", and of course only those who are good at French music. You can imagine Debussy, who didn't dislike women (it is said that he had a lot of troubles), was happy with Ninmari in the world.

Of course, the sonatas of his later years, who died after being able to compose only three songs while aiming for six songs, will also be performed.

My personal recommendation is "Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp".
A main tune with a mysterious and slightly inaccessible atmosphere.
I will try my best to follow it with my ears.
Anxiety when I suddenly lose sight of it.
And the feeling of relief that I feel when it reappears out of nowhere.
Naoko Yoshino, the best harp in the world when you play this song, is a beautiful harp feat. Enjoy it!
