Tokyo-Day 7 / 東京にて- 7日目

-From Wenhong, Viola

We did our first formal concert today. Everyone was very excited to play and we were satisfied afterwards too! The acoustic of the hall was on the dry side, but the good thing was that both us and the audience could hear all the details of character and sound changes. I am sure after this real experience of performing the whole program in front of the audience, our concerts in Osaka and Tokyo later will be even better!

We had to leave and catch the train immediately after the concert, but the train ride gave us a little surprise. It was around 6pm, and suddenly the scene through our window brought all of the attention. Above the waves of the mountains there was the light of the setting sun, which painted the sky to layers of purple and red, just as pretty as a girl’s rosy cheek. It was not enough time to appreciate it as the train went in to the mountains. By the time it appeared to us again, the sky already changed to another face – only the tail of the brightness left, but it was still a sweet picture since there was more clouds floating on the sky like the marshmallows melting into water. It got completely dark very soon, so people either went back to sleep again, or tried to remember it by writing it down like me.

The sun never stops to rise and set everyday, but this beautiful moment we barely get to enjoy.

 

~ウェンホン(ヴィオラ)より

今日、初めてのフォーマルなコンサートがありました。私たち全員はワクワクして演奏にのぞみ、その後はとても満足しました!ホールは残響が少ない方でしたが、そのお陰で私たちと観客どちらも音質や音色の変化のすべてを細やかに聞くことができました。観客の前で全曲目を通して演奏できたので、これからはもっとよくなると思います!

コンサートの後すぐに出発して電車に乗ったのですが、少し驚くことがありました。午後6時ごろでしたが、車窓に突然現れた光景に私たちは目を奪われました。山波の向こうに沈んでいく夕陽の光が、まるで女の子のバラ色の頬のように、空に紫色と赤のベールを重ねて美しく彩られていたのです。列車が山間部に入ったので、ゆっくり見る時間はく、再び空が見えた時には、すでに別の顔に変わっていました。明るさの残りはまだ少し残っていましたが、空には水に溶けていくマシュマロのようなたくさんの雲が浮かび、またこれも甘美な光景でした。すぐに完全に暗くなってしまい、みんなは再び眠ったり、私のように、思い出せるように書き留めたりしていました。

毎日の太陽が昇りそして沈むということが止まることは決してありませんが、こんなにも美しい瞬間を楽しめることはほとんどないでしょう。
