On April 28, 2011, the premiere of "Kiujiro's Summer - Hisaishi Piano Music Dream Journey Concert"
at the Beijing Concert Hall caused a huge sensation.
Domestic musicians' superb performances, professional and sophisticated repertoire selection,
and ingenious program arrangements have made their tour performances climax across the country.
Over the years, its performance quality and artistic level have been well-known.
After watching the concert, some audience commented:
"This is the best Hisaishi concert in the country!"
The birth of this concert was the first time that the piano quintet performed the
music of Joe Hisaishi. Since then, "Joo Hisaishi's Works Concert" has spread all over the country.
In China, there are many people who don't know Joe Hisaishi,
but not many people who have never heard Joe Hisaishi's music.
If Hayao Miyazaki is in Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack,
then the purest Takeshi Kitano is in Joe Hisaishi's music.
Many people know "Kiujiro's Summer" because they like "Summer".
At the concert:
"Summer" is cheerful and enthusiastic;
"One Summer's Day" in "Spirited Away" is pure and sincere;
"Castle in the Sky" is ethereal with a touch of sadness in the piano version;
"Sea の" in "Witch's Delivery Service" See える Street" (also known as "The Changing Seasons"),
the long-lost innocence touched the hearts of the audience;
the theme music of "The Devil's Delivery Service" played by piano and violin was beautiful;
the music in "My Neighbor Totoro" played by piano and cello "The Corridor of the Wind" became a
beautiful scene at the concert.
Of course, there are also some of Hisaishi's well-known classics such as
"My Neighbor Totoro", "Howl's Moving Castle", "Porcelain", "Bad Boy's Sky", "Fireworks",
"BROTHER" and "BOLERO". . . . .
In order to avoid confusion, there will be no film interference at the concert site.
The audience will fully appreciate the high-level performance of the musicians,
listen to the wonderful music, and feel the charm of the scene.
