  • Kyoto Symphony Orchestra × Kanji Ishimaru  Music and Poetry: Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Japanese songs and a globally renowned masterpiece conjure up a world of music and poetry

The first half of this concert event features Japanese songs suffused with nostalgia, performed by the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra and three vocalists (Kanji Ishimaru, Yurie Takano, Reina Suzuki). The second half comprises a full performance of Felix Mendelssohn’s incidental music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream, read by Kanji Ishimaru. In this way, the concert showcases the power of language, complemented by the radiance of music. Ishimaru’s singing and reading further enhance the delightful experience of hearing the orchestra’s recital.
