Clarinet concert: Clarimania 2016 – JAPAN DAY

Wroclaw 2016


A floral feast by Japanese musicians, both established masters and young talent.

Organized since 2002 in Wroclaw International Clarinet Festival, CLARIMANIA covers a wide range of artistic and educational projects dedicated to woodwind instruments. Last year’s special Czech Day was a great success and this year we had the privilege to present the Japan Day in cooperation with Japan clarinet association, filled with Japanese music, performed by Japanese artists. The most acknowledged Japanese clarinetists of the older generation and the younger ones delighted Clarimania’s public and international participants with their performances. The guest star of the evening concert was Yoshinobu Kamei – Tokyo Music College professor, whose performance was highly impressive. The afternoon performance of Anna Hashimoto was another highlight of the day – a young, virtuoso player with refined style and a well chosen, delightful program brought the Wrocław Conservatory Concert Hall down. The public appreciated the artists’ level, presented works as well as the repertoire diversity. Japan Day at Clarimania 2016 provided exceptional impressions and unforgettable memories for all the public and musicians participating in the festival.
