I received a note from my friend Hidejiro Honjo, Shamisen artist and great young friend of mine, about live streaming of Ryuichi Sakamoto  x Hidejiro Honjoh Premium Live concert this evening.  After a bit of trial and error (and rushing to get ready at 6:30 pm), I managed to find it.

What Ryuichi Sakamoto plays on piano is so impressive and moving that I feel like crying.  Hidejiro Honjoh played several pieces, one of which is his own composition, each quite different and distinctive.  I have known Hidejiro for some time (through Dai Fujikura) and met w Ryuichi Sakamoto briefly at Mostly Mozart concert in NYC a few years ago. Featured photo is Hidejiro Honjoh at Born Creative Festival last year at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre.

Even with difficulties around corona virus, listening to music makes me feel that I am alive and there are so many beautiful things in the world.  I am grateful to Honjoh san and Sakamoto san for such heart warming performance.
