OITA PEACE SYMPHONY
The Argerich Arts Foundation, has released a new video that I am hoping is of interest to your site.
The promotional video, entitled “Oita Peace Symphony,” introduces the 19th MUSIC FESTIVAL “Argerich’s Meeting Point in Beppu” that will take place from May 6 to 26. World-renowned pianist Martha Argerich, hailed as this century’s best and the queen of the keyboards, will serve as general director. She adds, “Now is the time to spread the message of the Peace Symphony around the world.”

Oita has been steeped in classical music since Francis Xavvier’s arrival in Japan in the 16th century. Ms. Argerich’s first visit to the area was in 1970 and she has attended the Music Festival for the past 22 years. Today, the “Shiiki presents Argerich’s Haus”, completed in 2015, stands as a sign of the region’s affection for Martha Argerich and the one-of-a-kind structure serves as a focal point for the MUSIC FESTIVAL Argerich’s Meeting Point in Beppu.
