“Fantastic Gala Concert 2018” invited by Yasunao Ishida

石田泰尚さんがいざなう『ファンタスティック・ガラコンサート 2018』

The annual "Fantastic Gala Concert" is held at the end of the year. This year, celebrating the 160th anniversary of Japan-France relations, we will be delivering a stylish and elegant program with a French theme.
A gorgeous lineup, from Japan's leading artists to promising young performers, will gather at Kanagawa Kenmin Hall! Among them, this time we spoke to Yasunao Ishida, principal solo concertmaster of the Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra.

"Fantastic Gala Concert 2018" will be held for the 13th time this year.

I agree. I have been participating since 2015.
I still remember the first time I went on stage. The seats on the third floor of the prefectural hall, which can hold over 2,000 people, were filled with customers, and I thought, ``This is amazing.'' You can tell from the applause that all the guests are looking forward to this concert and that they want to ``enjoy it to the fullest.'' This is the happiest thing for me as a performer.

Each program is very diverse, from orchestral music to opera and ballet music.

It's wonderfully diverse. To be honest, it's quite difficult because we have to perform this in one day (lol). However, the soloists are all top-notch, so it's true that it's a lot of fun to play.
In addition, baritone Masumitsu Miyamoto, who will also serve as the emcee, not only sings wonderfully, but is also good at getting the audience excited, so I'm looking forward to hearing that as well.

The well-known ballerina Mizuka Ueno will also perform at the Kenmin Hall.

Yes, I'm really looking forward to it. I have collaborated with Mr. Ueno before for this gala performance, and it was truly beautiful. I don't usually have the opportunity to watch ballet, so when I see it up close, I'm moved by how beautiful it is. This time, the Adagio from the ballet "Swan Lake" is scheduled, and since it has a violin solo, I'm looking forward to performing together.

I heard that the special session will be performed as a duo with pianist Tsuyoshi Nakajima.

We will be playing Piazzolla's ``Le Grand Tango.''
Piazzolla is one of my favorite musicians, but I think of his music as a genre of "Piazzolla" rather than classical or tango.
The song itself is not long, about 7-8 minutes. But it's cool anyway. This song was originally written for cello, but it's also great and cool for violin. I'll definitely liven it up.

What kind of year was 2018 for you?

I feel that this year has been more fulfilling than ever before. We performed all 10 of Beethoven's violin sonatas in one day, and the "Ishida-gumi" I produce also recorded BS.
It looks like I'll be busy next year, so I think I have to take care of my health.

What would you like to try in the future?

I want to try something that no one else has ever done. When I performed Beethoven's complete works this year, I thought to myself, ``There will be no one else to play it'' (lol). I have a lot of desires, goals, and things I want to do, so I always want to try new things.

Please give a message to Magcal readers.

“Fantastic Gala Concert 2018” is a concert that cannot be experienced anywhere else. There's singing, there's piano, there's ballet, and you can even listen to live orchestral music. There's so much going on that I think even people who don't usually go to classical concerts will have a lot of fun. Please come and visit us.
