【2019OICMA 東京公演映像公開】7月31日に紀尾井ホールで行われた、小澤国際室内楽アカデミー奥志賀 東京公演。アンコールで指揮台に上がった小澤征爾の指揮による、ベートーヴェン:弦楽四重奏曲 第16番 Op.135 第3楽章の映像を一部ご紹介します。この楽曲は、アカデミー奥志賀で長年講師として活躍し、昨年1月に亡くなられたヴァイオリニストのロバート・マン氏が、ジュリアード弦楽四重奏団期より最も愛し、何度も指揮をした曲の一つ。近年、小澤征爾も好んで取り上げている思い入れの深い曲で、7月30日に行われたリハーサルの際にも、しみじみと「良い曲だね」と受講生たちに話していました。ベートーヴェンが完成させた最後の作品としても知られるこの曲は、今年のセイジ・オザワ 松本フェスティバル「ふれあいコンサートI」(8月18日)で、小澤征爾スイス国際アカデミーも演奏する予定です。【2019OICMA Tokyo performance Beethoven video】2019OICMA closed its curtain at Tokyo performance on July 31st at Kioi Hall.
