A special concert "Fresh Concert" by the Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra, delivering a glamorous competition by young and up-and-coming musicians. This year, the 13th year, Sayuri Fukushima (flute), who won first place in the general section of the 34th Kanagawa Music Competition Flute Division held last year, will appear.
We asked Mr. Fukushima, who is the first soloist to be on the stage as a soloist, his career as a musician and his enthusiasm for concerts.

How did you start playing flute?

I started to play flute after I entered the brass band in junior high school. I had a longing since elementary school, but I had no chance.
I have been learning the piano since I was 5 years old, but I just went to practice because it was fun, and I have no memory I practiced hard (laughs). Rather, I think that I belonged to the Instrumental Club in elementary school and worked on the recorder ensemble. As it was a very powerful school, I also participated in national competitions.

Flute seems more difficult than recorder

I agree. The recorder makes a sound just by blowing, but the flute makes no sound when it is just blown. But I heard a sound from the beginning. In the brass band, I entered the flute part as I wished, and I was able to teach from the basics because there were seniors who were properly learning, and I was lucky (laughs). After that, the adviser's teacher gave me the advice “I should have learned properly,” and I began to take lessons from the local (Hokkaido) teacher.

I wanted to be a professional musician from that time

No. I just thought I wanted to be a music teacher because I liked musical instruments, but I was planning to advance to a local university. I started to study for Music University since I entered high school. With the recommendation of a local teacher, I began to take lessons from the teachers of the Sapporo Symphony Orchestra, and gradually I felt that I wanted to go to a music university in Tokyo and study music. The preparation was difficult because the start was late for aiming at the music college.

Last year, she won first place in the general section of the 34th Kanagawa Music Competition Flute Division

Thank you very much. I was extremely nervous, and I was desperate at the show, but I enjoyed the performance itself. There are many points that I would like to reflect on when I listened later, but at that point I think it was the best I could do.

Co-star with Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra at Freshman Concert in March

I am very honored to be able to perform with the members of the Kanagawa Philharmonic Orchestra. I'm nervous for the first time as a soloist with an orchestra, so I think I'm nervous, but I really want to enjoy it.

Can you introduce Mozart's Flute Concerto No. 1 in G major

Mozart's fullThere are three tote concertos, but the first major is very attractive in the beginning of the song and in the dynamic part. The glamorous part and the gentle melody like a Mozart-like mother, the contrast is also wonderful. I can play with the wonderful orchestra members in the wonderful hall of Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall, so I would like to convey the charm of it.
In fact, this song was a subject song at the time of university examination, so it is a really long relationship. I think it will be a song that I will work on for the rest of my life after the concert this time.

What is your future dream as a flute player?

There have been many changes in me for the past couple of years. Having advanced to the graduate school of Tokyo Geidai that I was amazed, my perspective and relationships have expanded greatly, and I have a wide range of experiences with various connections.
As one of the dreams that came from there, I would like to play in an orchestra that plays the opera. It is difficult because there is no orchestra dedicated to the opera house in Japan, but as a dream. I am undecided in my affiliation after graduation, but I hope that I will continue my studies and hope to be able to work as a professional orchestra player.

Thank you very much!
