After my stay in Berlin, I was back in Japan for one month! During this I went to Takefu International Music Festival and I had 7 interviews....Very busy summer!!
In the middle of September, I left for Europe again as a Japan Cultural Envoy. The first destination is Budapest in Hungary!!
I was invited by Ambassador Junichi Kosuge for lunch at his residency with the director of Japan Foundation Budapest, Emi Iwanaga. It was former house of Zsolnay family, famous Hungarian porcelain. Very beautiful house and very delicious lunch!!
I gave a lecture at Liszt Ferenc Academy of Music!
In Budapest, I will have a prestation for Peter Eötvös, which was organized by The Japan Foundation Budapest and Eötvös Music Foundation.
The venue is Budapest Music Center(BMC).
We rehearsed with Peter Eötvös at BMC Library.
I am very honored that György Kurtág attended the concert!
