On April 28, 2011, the premiere of "Kikujiro's Summer - Hisaishi Joe's Piano Music Dream Journey Concert" in the Beijing Concert Hall caused a huge sensation.

The superb performances, professional and excellent repertoire compilation, and unique program arrangement of domestic first-class musicians have made its national tour climaxes one after another.

Over the years, its performance quality and artistic level have been well-known. Some viewers commented after watching the concert: "This is the best Hisaishi concert in China!"

The birth of this concert was the first for a piano quintet to perform Joe Hisaishi's music. Since then, "Jo Hisaishi Works Concert" has spread all over the country.

In China, there are many people who don't know Hisaishi, but not many people have never heard Hisaishi's music. If the most beautiful Hayao Miyazaki is in Joe Hisaishi's soundtrack, then the most innocent Takeshi Kitano is in Joe Hisaishi's music. Many people know "Kikujiro'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;

The ethereal piano version of "Laputa in the Sky" exudes a touch of sadness;

The long-lost innocence of "海の见える街" (also known as "The Changing Seasons") in "Kiki's Delivery Service" touched the hearts of the audience;

The theme music of "Kiki's Delivery Service" played by piano and violin is beautiful;

The "Avenue of Wind" in "My Neighbor Totoro" played by piano and cello became a beautiful scene in the concert.

Of course, Hisaishi's classic masterpieces such as "My Neighbor Totoro", "Howl's Moving Castle", "Porco Rosso", "Bad Boy's Sky", "Huahuo", "BROTHER", "BOLERO" and so on...

 

In order to avoid confusing the audience, there will be no interference from the movie screen at the concert site, and the audience will fully appreciate the high-level performance of the musicians, listen to the wonderful music, and feel the unique charm of the scene.
