For its 45th Anniversary Festival and Fifth Artist Residence, Music From Japan is inviting composer Noriko Koide and musicologist Seiji Choki for a weekend of concerts and educational events. On Saturday February 22nd, at 7pm The Works of Noriko Koide will include a retrospective of Koide’s work, including the world premiere of a new MFJ commission. On Sunday February 23rd at 5:30pm Identity, what does it matter? New Generations in Japan, curated by professor Choki, will feature several living Japanese composers. The concert will be preceded by a lecture by Choki. All but one of the artists have never been presented by MFJ and all of them have rarely, if ever been presented in New York. As usual, many of New York’s most renowned chamber musicians will be interpreting the music of these fascinating Japanese composers. Momenta Quartet, Elizabeth Brown, Marianne Gythfeldt, William Schimmel, and Oren Fader will all be included on the 45th Anniversary Festival program. Both concerts will be followed by open forums with composers, musicologists, critics, and musicians from the US and Japan.
