July 4th, 7月4日

Happy 4th of July! For many years, American Orchestras perform the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky with fireworks to celebrate the 4th. This year, I don’t think we can see this happen anywhere. What does 1812 Overture have to with America? It is because of the use of the Canon in the piece. When I hear canon, I think of Pachelbel. So I thought about what we can do to celebrate this July 4th. I combined Pachelbel’s Canon, Tchaikovsky’s 5th Symphony and 1812 Overture. I arranged this piece for 2 Violins and Cello, performed by the Tagawa Trio. Here is our performance on youtube. Enjoy! https://youtu.be/Tqxr_9ZOkGg

今日は7月4日です。アメリカではインディペンデンスデイをお祝いします。アメリカでは7月4日のコンサートはチャイコフスキーの1812と花火が定番です。1812とアメリカは全く関係ないのでは?と思いますよね? ただ大砲(カノン)を使うという点でこの曲はアメリカ軍隊がすこし?今年はオーケストラでの1812、カノンはお目にかかれないので今日は2つのバイオリンとチェロのためにパッヘルベルのカノン、チャイコフスキーの交響曲第5番と1812を混ぜ合わせた曲を田川トリオの演奏でお楽しみください。https://youtu.be/Tqxr_9ZOkGg
