Festival 2016
For its 41st season, Music From Japan is introducing a new Artist Residence Program to facilitate dialogue between composers, critics and music scholars from the US and Japan. This year, we are inviting composer Misato Mochizuki and musicologist Yuji Numano to New York to participate in a series of lectures, seminars, and forums with their American counterparts, including critic Nancy Malitz and composers Richard Teitelbaum and Carl Stone. MFJ will also present a weekend of Japanese contemporary music, including a world premieres of a piece commissioned by Music From Japan.

On Saturday, February 27th, and Sunday February 28th MFJ will present two concerts at Victor Borge Hall, Scandinavia House on Park Avenue in New York City. On Saturday at 8pm, The Works of Misato Mochizuki will feature several of the composer's pieces, performed by the Music From Japan Chamber Ensemble. The concert will be preceded by a lecture, at 7pm, by Mr. Numano on Japanese composition in the current century. The Sunday 2pm concert, Japanese Composers in the 21st Century, will be curated by Mr. Numano.  He will present a variety of recent music by Japanese composers including the world premiere of a Music From Japan commissioned piece by Hiroyuki Yamamoto. This will provide an opportunity for New Yorkers to hear compositions rarely, if ever performed in the US.

Music From Japan's Festival 2016 is funded in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
