We will hold a classical concert. Please enjoy Chopin’s masterpiece by string quartet and the concert where the stars in the sky are synchronized during this summer’s healing time.

Nocturne left by Chopin to experience in the planetarium

The performers in this performance are called “Piano Poetry” and are the masterpieces of the Romantic pianist / composer Frederic Chopin.
Chopin’s piano melody still attracts our hearts without fading.
“Farewell song (Etude Op.10-3)” and “Ame-dare (Prelude Op.28-15)”, including “Nocturne Op.9-2”, which is famous as a Japanese name and nocturne. Please enjoy the beautiful and fantastic set list with the realistic stars projected by the planetarium to your heart’s content.

Chopin's ultimate masterpiece in a string quartet

In this performance, while faithful to Chopin’s original song, which is a piano song, we will perform with a new approach using a string quartet. The quartet with a special composition (*) using two violins, violas, and contrabass reproduces the bass to treble band and sound pressure of the piano, while each instrument takes the main melody. It has a different taste from the performance.

* A string quartet usually refers to the formation of two violins, a viola, and a cello.
