*Comment from the Performer*

I deepened a research especially about contemporary music when I was in university. I was attracted to expression and sound from baroque music such as Couperin, Handel and Bach to avant-garde music such as Stockhausen and Ligeti and played.
At the time, Mr. Norio Sato, who is the Guitarist and also the Artistic Director of Ensemble NOMAD that led Japanese contemporary music world, was teaching at the university as a professor. His lecture, of course, I joined his guitar ensemble as a harpsichord player, participated in parties, also asked him to listen to my play. I tried to learn thoroughly from Mr. Norio Sato anyway. After graduated, I asked him to guest performance at my self organized concert series “Soundscape” many times, and I am learning from him through the concerts at the same time.
At this concert, titled “Go To SOUNDSCAPE Welcome to Piano New World”, I selected musics under two themes. One is works for children made by contemporary music composers. Another is Love. Now that people are mentally worn out due to the COVID-19 disaster, I wish to touch “Love” expressed by various techniques with many people from children to adults.
