We are sorry, but the concert is booked out!
This year we will celebrate the 120th birthday of the well-loved poet in Japan MIYAZAWA Kenji. To help celebrate, we warmly invite children and adults to this reading with visuals and music by the composer YAMAMOTO Shigehiro, and learn more about the world of MIYAZAWA Kenji.
YAMAMOTO Shigehiro is a composer of contemporary music and Conductor Laureate of the Fukuoka Civic Orchestra. He has given numerous concerts in Europe including with the L'Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse.
Inspired by MIYAZAWA Kenji's story “Gōshu, the Cellist”, YAMAMOTO Shigehiro published in 1996 a chamber piece for flute, oboe, clarinet and the violoncello. Musicians based in Berlin will play this piece at its Berlin premiere.
The reading of the work will be in German translation.
