Mitsui & Co., Ltd. ("Mitsui", Head Office: Tokyo, President and CEO: Tatsuo Yasunaga) will stream the "Mitsui & Co., Ltd. Classical Concert 2021, Music for Tomorrow" online to audiences across the world starting from April 1, 2021.
The Mitsui & Co., Ltd. Classical Concert 2021 hopes to encourage people and lift their spirits during this challenging time, as well as create an opportunity to make the world a little brighter. The concert was recorded at the Otemachi Mitsui Hall, which opened in June 2020, and this will be the first classical concert at the hall.
The concert will feature famous works by Argentine composer and bandoneon player Astor Piazzolla, who would have celebrated his 100th birthday in March 2021, along with the king of classical music Johann Sebastian Bach and Antonio Vivaldi. Each of these composers brought innovation and change to music in their respective eras, with masterpieces that still fascinate many people today.
The concert will be performed by the Otemachi One Special Ensemble, a group of young, elite musicians consisting of five nationally and internationally renowned soloists.
