My Concert “Piano Journey in Japan: Import, Synthesis, and Export – From the First Piano Piece in Japan to the Game Music” 2/12/12

February 12, 2012

I will perform “Piano Journey in Japan: Import, Synthesis, and Export – From the First Piano Piece in Japan to the Game Music” on Saturday March 3rd at 3pm at Occidental College’s Bird Studio. This program has received the grant from the Japan Foundation. I have been introducing our wonderful Japanese music to the world for last 15 years, and I am happy to bring it to my town, LA, especially at my school!

I will start with the first Japanese piano piece “Menueto” by Rentaro Taki (1900), and play pieces by the next generations. Finally I will play music by Ryuichi Sakamoto, Nobuo Uematsu, and Takashi Yoshimatsu in the newest generation. Between playing I will talk about the culture and history in Japan to go with the music. If you are interested in Japanese culture/history it will be a good program to learn and enjoy!! Please join me on Saturday 3/3 at 3pm at Occidental College’s Bird Studio. It is free, and the parking is free too!
