Kuraki World: Classical Concert
Sun,4 Dec 2022 (14:00 - )
Fee: adult – \2000, child in elementary and middle school – \1000
The classical concert performed by members of the NHK Symphony Orchestra is held every year when beautiful autumn leaves color the garden. We are glad to see our audience growth year by year.
Please focus on splendid acoustics in our noh theater although it goes without saying that the musical performance is splendid. The noh stage has 9 big jars underneath its floor to echo the sounds by resonating the cavities, and the ceiling is high. So, the sound is no less awesome than that of a decent concert hall. You will hear beautiful low-pitched sounds such as cello amplified by the resonance effect of the jars. The stage itself plays the sound like an instrument.
We are very glad to hear that performers say they like the comfortable and exciting sentient as if they are embraced by sounds from underneath, even though they have many experiences to perform at many brilliant concert halls.
This is a concert with guest Haruo Ogawa (classical guitar) in a trio of Yuki Oshika (violin), Shigetaka Obata (viola), and Kenichi Nishiyama (cello).
Please enjoy prime music here in the beautiful autumn season.
