Tokyo City Philharmonic Orchestra 329th Regular Concert (November 9, 2019, Saturday) 14:00 Doors Open: Tokyo Opera City Concert Hall, Part 1


I went there.

I was surprised that there were not many customers and the back was empty.
What does it mean for me to have a more enjoyable concert?

Is it because the song is a maniac? Is it due to the unexpectedly low popularity of Kanon Matsuda? Is this a cityfill that is clear and has a low name value?

Ralph Vaughan Williams:5 Variants of“Dives and Lazarus”

Is a song with a beautiful polyphonic string overlap and fusion, like “HENRYK GORECKI: Symphony No.3 Symphony of Sorrowful Songs”.
Speaking of the times, this song may be the origin.

It seems that you can see the calm lakes and the old castles in the British atmosphere.

Mr. Yukio Fujioka, the conductor, performed wonderfully by Sibelius, which I listened to on TV the other day. British music is good too.
I think that it is good to manipulate the overlapping of strings.
I think it’s such a gentle and beautiful feeling, or maybe someone who likes this kind of classic.

Perhaps you like this one more than conducting Beethoven.

In other words, I think that modern Japanese people are suitable for British music. Many conductors are good at it.
The overwhelming expression of European continental music, which sometimes becomes a barrier for Japanese people, will be relativized by the humility of British music. That is not everything in the West.

According to the preliminary commentary, Ralph Vaughan Williams composed folk songs without going to the mainstream avant-garde music.
The British avant-garde musicians at that time could not leave their names, and the current “classic” musicians also affirmed that the name would remain in the long term if they were making tonal music without being caught up in the trend.
