Review 12th-15th
Hiroaki Ooi' gave a clavichord recital at Wakeijuku on Tuesday 12th June. Programmed were the Art of Fugue (BWV 1080) and Musical Offering (BMV 1079). And the Unfinished Fugue complemented by Masato Suzuki was added to the program. The serenity which the venue provided and the thick sound realized only by Ooi's clavichord technique are one of the most impressive combinations of music and architecture at this festival.

Nicolau de Figueiredo harpsichord recital, held at Mejiro Anglican Church on Wednesday 13th, drove the audience into a trance by the prodigious performance with his abundant musical aspiration. Both J. H. d'Anglebert's Tombeau de Monsieur Chambonnieres and Antonio Soler's Fantango played for encore, Nicolau won an ovation which was almost frantic.

Claudio Cavina and La Venexiana appeared on stage at Toppan Hall on Thursday 14th for C. Monteverdi's Madrigale. "T'amo" is the word no one never uttered so expressively and sweetly as they sang, possibly, at least in Mejiro area.

Anthonello is one of two resident artist groups of this festival since it began 2005, and this year they had hit the premiere by Vespro. This time, on Friday 15th, Anthonello made a band of 11 artists including Adrian Rodriguez Van der Spoel and Rafael Bonavita. They recreated the impact of the initial contact of the Japan music scene with Western music in 16th century when the Counter-Reformation and Great Discovery interactively urged the penetration and fusion of Renaissance Music in Japan.
