Extractions: Joji Hattori is an artist who's engaging personality and deeply committed performances have made him one of the leading Japanese violinists of his generation. In addition to his activities as violin soloist, he spends a significant amount of time conducting chamber orchestras and playing chamber music. Hattori started playing the violin at the age of five and spent his childhood in a very musical family, regularly playing chamber music with leading Viennese musicians in informal home concerts. Later he studied with Rainer Kuchl at the Vienna Academy of Music followed by intensive private study with Herman Krebbers, Michel Schwalbe and Vladimir Spivakov. In 1992 his concerto debut in Tokyo lead him to being awarded the most prestigious honour for young musicians in Japan, the Japan Steel 'Young Musician of the Year'. Since then, he has been regularly invited to appear with most of the major Japanese symphony orchestras, including the New Japan Philharmonic under Seiji Ozawa. In Europe, Joji Hattori has appeared as soloist with many distinguished orchestras including the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the BBC National Orchestra of Wales, Munich Radio Orchestra, Prague Radio Symphony Orchestra, Slovakian Philharmonic, Sinfonia Varsovia, the Vienna, Israel and English Chamber orchestras and the Moscow Virtuosi.

In June 2000, Simon gave a concert at the Wigmore Hall with the violinist Joji Hattori.

Although Simon made his first recording at just 12 years, it wasnt until 1995 that he made his first commercial debut recording, which was re-released on the P3 Label in 2002. He went on to record an exciting new Double Concerto for Guitar, Electric Bass and String Orchestra by the esteemed British composer Andrew Downes. But his fame found new impetus with the release of Favourite Guitar Works on the Classic FM/BMG Conifer label. Simon's CD was one of the best selling in the collection and can be heard frequently on Classic FM. Subsequent releases include a collection of guitar works on the RCA Victor label that features Simon alongside Julian Bream and John Williams.

Extractions: Joji Hattori gastiert in Wien Am 15. November 2001 wird der japanische Violinist Joji Hattori gemeinsam mit Franz Bartolomey (Violoncello) und Gottlieb Wallisch (Klavier) im Wiener Musikverein gastieren. Zur Aufführung kommen Werke von Ludwig van Beethoven, Maurice Ravel und Johannes Brahms. Joji Hattori, der zu den führenden japanischen Musikern der jüngeren Generation zählt, verbrachte den Großteil seiner Kindheit in Wien. Er erhielt im Alter von fünf Jahren den ersten Violinunterricht; nach Abschluß der Theresianischen Akademie studierte er Violine bei Rainer Küchl an der Wiener Hochschule für Musik und darstellende Kunst sowie später bei Hermann Krebbers, Michel Schwalbé und Vladimir Spivakov. 1989 gewann er den Ersten Preis, den Bachpreis und den Publikumspreis beim Internationalen Yehudi Menuhin Violinwettbewerb, unmittelbar darauf folgte sein erfolgreiches Englanddebut mit dem Royal Philharmonic Orchestra unter Lord Menuhin. 1992 unternahm er seine erste Japantournee. Neben seiner solistischen Tätigkeit, in deren Rahmen er mit renommierten japanischen und europäischen Orchestern zusammenarbeitet, hat er sich auch der Kammermusik und der Leitung von Kammerorchestern verschrieben. Joji Hattori, der gegenwärtig in London lebt, hält eine Gastprofessur an der Royal Academy of Music und widmet sich neben seinen Konzertverpflichtungen auch seinen akademischen Interessen für Soziologie als Senior Associate Member des St. Antony College in Oxford.
Extractions: Chamber Music Festival continues with Emerson and Ying Quartets By Jim Helsing After weekend concerts by the St. Petersburg Quartet and Finckel-Han cellist-piano duo, the Festival de Música de Cámaras first full week includes performances by the Emerson and Ying string quartets, two concerts showcasing winners of international contests, and a one-time appearance of an ensemble of four star musicians from around the world. The Emerson Quartet leads off the week on July 31, with a concert that includes quartets by Haydn, Shostakovich and Mendelssohn. The Haydn work is nicknamed The Joke because of its comic finale. The Shostakovich quartet, No. 14 of a total of 15, is a mysterious work with many solos and moments of extreme isolation, which threaten to unravel the four-way fabric of quartet discourse. This quartet forces an unusually heavy responsibility upon the listener to follow the musics argument and conveys a very contemporary sense of doubt and absurdity. The final work on the Emerson program is the Mendelssohn Quartet in A minor, Op. 13, written when the composer was 18, to memorialize having fallen in love while on a holiday. On August 1, the St. Petersburg Quartet will perform Shostakovich, Dvorak and Borodin. Thursday, August 2, will feature the winner of the Irving Klein International Competition, held annually in San Francisco. The 2001 winner is 16-year-old violinist Howard Zhang from Shanghai, China. Zhang is now a student at the Julliard School of Music in New York City. First prize in the Klein Competition includes US$10,000 and several concert appearances, including the one in the San Miguel Festival. The cash prize is endowed by long-time San Miguel resident Charlotte Kursh. Zhangs program includes Beethoven, Paganini, Bach, Sarasate, Tchaikowsky and Alan Ridout.

Extractions: Joji Hattori zählt derzeit als Geiger und zunehmend als Dirigent zu den führenden japanischen Musikern der jüngeren Generation. In Japan geboren, hat er den grössten Teil seiner Kindheit und Jugend in Wien verbracht. Von beiden Kulturen geprägt und mit dem Ursprung seiner musikalischen Laufbahn in der Kammermusik, ist Joji Hattori heute einer der wenigen Musiker asiatischer Herkunft, der von internationalen Orchestern vor allem als Interpret der Wiener Klassik (Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven und Schubert) geschätzt wird. Hattori begann mit dem Violinspiel im Alter von fünf Jahren und studierte bei Rainer Küchl an der Wiener Musikhochschule. Später erhielt er Unterricht von Yehudi Menuhin, Michel Schwalbé und Vladimir Spivakov. 1989 gewann er den Ersten Preis beim Internationalen Yehudi Menuhin Violinwettbewerb. Im September 2002 wurde er im ersten Maazel-Vilar Wettbewerb unter 362 Kandidaten ausgewählt, in der Carnegie Hall ein Debütkonzert mit dem St.Luke Symphony Orchestra zu dirigieren, und wurde mit dem Lincoln Maazel Fellowship Preis ausgezeichnet, welches ihm ermöglicht, in den kommenden Jahren mit Lorin Maazel als Mentor zu arbeiten. Als Violinsolist hat er weltweit mit zahlreichen Orchestern gearbeitet, u. a. mit dem Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, den Wiener Symphonikern (unter Vladimir Fedosejev), der Slovakischen Philharmonie, der Sinfonia Varsovia, dem Münchner und Prager Rundfunkorchester, dem Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (unter Yehudi Menuhin), dem BBC National Orchestra of Wales, dem Orchestre National de Lille, dem Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, der New Japan Philharmonic (unter Seiji Ozawa), Seoul Philharmonic, den Moskauer Virtuosen und dem English und Israel Chamber Orchestra.

Extractions: In the opening Dvorak's Waltz, warm and velvety sound from the string section, characteristic of this ensemble, as well as the naturally secure intonation were already evident. This was followed by the commissioned work Two Fragments for Solo Violin and Quartet: Black and Yellow by the late Ikuma Dan which combined the enjoyment of Dan's easily accessible musical language with the visual entertainment of black-and-yellow costume. The third work Dvorak's String Quintet No.2 seemed less polished, however it left a potential for further experiment in programming - they are planning to continue incorporating chamber works in an orchestral concert. With the guest viola player Masao Kawasaki and Hattori himself as the soloists, the final work Sinfonia Concertante by Mozart was very enjoyable and full of lively spirit. Instead of trying to compete with each other's individual interpretations and techniques, the two soloists agreeably made their musical personalities come through and supported each other. This, together with very fine playing from the orchestra resulted in a pleasantly convincing performance. The concept of this newly established ensemble is to create an environment in which the performers and the audience are able to share the joy of ensemble playing: tonight's program successfully reflected this with its diversity of works included and the vitality evident throughout.

Extractions: Front Page National Southern States Other States ... Previous THE MUSIC is familiar, easy and frothy but if it is also elegant, witty, sonorous, graceful and with the dark continuo of tragic sense, then it has to be Vienna. And so was the Vienna Chamber Orchestra conducted by Joji Hattori. Two feats difficult to achieve were performed with grace and distinction - the antiphon responses within the string groupings where ideas move back and forth and the lustrous full orchestral singing that begin and end the work. The encore disproved the adage that the best wine should not be served last. And proved another one, that only for the Viennese is the Blue Danube really blue. Hattori from Japan, with unbuttoned zest, introduced the Blue Danube Waltz with some fetching words and then unleashed glorious playing with precise ensemble and the lilt which is uniquely Viennese. Whereas in Mumbai the programme was repeated with dancers in ball gowns at a gala event, in Chennai we gave our own distinctive accolade when a famous Bharatanatyam dancer, spontaneously waltzed gracefully out of the hall, an embodiment of the grace and music of a Viennese evening.

Extractions: st July, 1997 (Saturday) at Tokyo Metropolitan Art Space in Tokyo Conductor : Alan Gilbert Orchestra : The Tokyo Sympony Concert Master : Takumi Komoriya (Alan Gilbert) Of the 15 symphonies DSCH composed, the No.10 Symphony is one of the most dramatic and large-scaled ones. DSCH had not written any symphonies for about 8 years since the No.9 in 1945. Probably he did not intentionally compose symphonies during that period because of Stalin and Stalinism in Russia but the main theme of the No.10 symphony is no doubt Stalin, who passed away in March, 1953, and it was completed on 27 th October, 1953. DSCH often showed his autographs "D.S.C.H." in this symphony. Mr. Alan Gilbert is well known and famous to Classical music lovers and regarded as one of promising young conductors. He conducted the symphony very energetically and the 3 rd and 4 th movements were excellent. I wish to listen to his DSCH's symphonies much more in the near future. He and The Tokyo Symphony performed A. Liadov's "The Enchanted Lade" OP.62 and S.Prokofiev's "Violin Concerto No.2 in G minor" Op.63 - Ms. Kyoko Takezawa - violin, too. Both were brilliant, Ms. Kyoko Takezawa in particular !

Abida Parveen, along with other musicians from Iran and Lucknow, came together to sing at the Jahan-e-Khusrau festival organised by poet, film-maker and designer, Muzzafar Ali in Delhi recently. Said Ali of his latest venture, "This is the city of the great Sufi poet Amir Khusrau and I feel his aura and vibrations all over. So I thought of this idea." Of course Parveen stole the thunder as she sang. Ali said he invited her for the festival because it would enable people to know of and understand Khusrau. And Parveen? Thrilled at being part of the festival, she was the picture of grace and humility pointing out that music knew no boundaries. "Where there is music there is God," said Praveen. * IT was an unusual duo that flagged off a march against racism. When Pandit Ravi Shankar and his daughter Anoushka Shankar, played the role of activists protesting against racism, it was in the hope of inspiring people to sit up and notice and take a stance against this. Pt. Ravi Shankar, who is a good will ambassador for the U.N., released Hindi translations of three U.N. documents on the topic of racism. Admitting that it was a symbolic gesture to involve school children in the race, a U.N. official said that the idea behind including Anoushka was to inspire the younger generation.
