商品概要

全11曲、即興演奏です。

「キース・ジャレットのように即興を弾いてくれ」という依頼をいただいてピアノに向かいました。

キース・ジャレットは、即興の最中には、インパルスにつき動かされ「もはやピアニストはいない」「同時に会場には聴衆は一人もいず、全員が音楽に参加しているのだ」と述べています。今回の私のレコーディングでは聴衆はいませんでしたが、弾いていくうちに自分の主観がなくなり、ただただ音楽が進みたい方向に沿って演奏が進んでいく、まさに「ピアニストがいなくなる」体験でした。

即興演奏は、奏者の人間そのものが、強い面弱い面をふくめ、すべてが表れるものだと思います。
私は難しい音楽はできません。わかりやすく、だけど飽きず、いつまでも聴いて下さる方に寄り添える、そんな音楽を目指したいと思っています。それはそのまま、私の目指す人間像でもあります。

どうぞ、リラックスしてお聴き下さい。何かが、お心に残ることと思います。

All 11 pieces on this album are improvised piano works. I was asked by the publisher to “play your improvisation like Keith Jarrett.”

Keith Jarrett said that, while he was improvising, he was always “moved by some kind of impulse”. He also described that “there was no longer a pianist” and “simultaneously there was no audience at the venue, which means everyone was equally in the music”.

There was no audience at the time of my recording, but as I was playing, my subjectivity had disappeared and my performance just went towards the direction the music wanted to go to. It was exactly like a “no pianist” experience.

I think that improvisational performances show all the humanistic aspects of the performer, including his/her strengths and weaknesses.

(As a musician), I do not aim to make complex music. I wish to create music that is easy to understand, to feel comfortable with, but to never get tired of, hoping that my music touches the hearts of those who listen to it. This is also what I aim for as my ideal human image.

These 11 pieces may make you image a variety of scenery, such as clear blue skies, rainbow after the rain, and powerful ocean waves, as well as mindscapes such as longing, nostalgia, joy, and sorrow, etc. Please relax and listen to them with your own free fantasy. May something meaningful arise and remain in your mind.
