Classical Japans in Bishkek
The concert of classical music was held in the Kyrgyz National Conservatory, where the main actors were Japanese masters of musical art: Akiko Hayakawa, Eto Satiko and the Koichi Inoue
Event with the participation of winners of international competitions Akiko Hayakawa (soprano), Eto Satiko (piano) and the conductor of orchestra Koichi Inoue with the Symphonic Orchestra of Bishkek city hall caused a great excitement among the residents of the city. In the evening of the concert all Bishkek residents flocked to the National Conservatory, and the hall was filled to capacity. Lovers of classical music even stood in the hallway just in order not to miss an opportunity to listen to a great music.
The concert was a part of the Japanese culture week in Kyrgyzstan which was held in Bishkek from 9th to 16th of March, 2013.
The artistic director of the orchestra was Kyrgyz national artist Muratbek Begaliev.
The important thing is that the classical concert was very inspiring by its diversity. There were outstanding works of greatest composers of all time, such as Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Shostakovich.
During the concert I was reveling by the voice of incredible Japanese opera singer, by a skilled pianist’s playing, and, of course, by the work of whole orchestra that was capably ruled by the Japanese conductor.
It is pleasantly to know that a friendly contact between Kyrgyzstan and Japan has such a beneficial impact on the development of classical art in Kyrgyzstan.
