Event contents

La Folle Journee o japon 2016

Both person and music were born from nature.
la nature
nachuru- nature and music

Composers were charmed naturally all through the ages and they got much inspiration from nature and brought about many masterpieces. In 2016, we give hommage to "nature" which can be called the source of the beauty and art.

Nature and relation of music begin with descriptive expression such as the Renaissance or birdsong in the baroque. We became a target to reflect the inside of composer in the times of Romantic school afterwards while adding to musical depth so that it was representative in "the four seasons" of Vivaldi. And, after the 20th century, nature continues giving inspiration to musician consistently.

Program selects music from history of music for 500 years from scenery, animal, the heavenly bodies, various cut ends including natural phenomenon in season from the Renaissance to the present age. It will be to be able to fully enjoy various, rich imagination of music born from nature. Including Toru Takemitsu reaching 20 years after the death in 2016, we are going to take up splendid work by Japanese composer. In surprise and trip to music "nachuru - nature and music filled with imagination," please expect!

Classic music festival that La Folle Journee was born in port town Nantes in northwestern France in 1995. Naming of "La Folle Journee" (day of enthusiasm) is the same and shows the most exciting development in music festival that there is number of Europe. We set composer and genre to become theme every year. In 9 venues of convention center "protagonist de kongure", concert of approximately 45 minutes is developed concurrently from morning to evening. Seasonal young person and big name give a performance 300 to player in row, five days! We hold this. We choose favorite music and can indulge in music all day.

Besides, admission is surprising low price called 6 - 27EURO (700 yen - 3,000 yen). It depends on intention of Rene Martin (artistic director) to "want to reclaim new audience who has you enjoy first-class performance casually, and supports the tomorrow's classical music".
