Our guitar duo had a couple of concerts over these last few days.
On Friday we played at the reception of Yamazaki Ryo's sculpture exhibition. It was at a gallery near Mototanaka Station called Sukaboro. Around 30-40 people showed up. We performed for about 20 minutes at the beginning of the reception. This was our program:
1. Granados: Spanish Dance No. 2
2. Morricone: New Cinema Paradise
3. Fujii Keigo (arr.): Jag vet in Delig Rosa
4. Fujii Keigo (arr.): Genkotsu Yama no Passacaglia
On Monday we played at Entokuin, a subtemple of Kodaiji. We played the same program as above before the priest's lecture. There were around 70-80 (?) people there. The setting was quite lovely. To our front was a smallish rock garden surrounded by mossy rocks and small trees.
It has been a while since we have played in public, so I felt a bit stiff. But the performance was fairly good overall. I was reminded of the importance of performing regularly in public.
Our next performance will be on the 25th of this month!
