RETURN TO JAPAN

3 years ago on March 11, 2011 a powerful earthquake, followed by a tsunami, stroke the Eastern part of Japan.
On April 6 that year Classical Discoveries paid tribute to the victims of that tragedy in a special Program titled "FOR JAPAN".

At that time many facts regarding the damage to the nuclear reactor were yet unknown. Yes, 30 ft waves damaged several nuclear reactors causing one of the worst nuclear disasters ever.
The full extent of environmental damage will be not known for many years but we do know that the leak from the reactor already contaminated sea life and food supplies.

This accident proves that nuclear energy, regardless of how it is used, whether it be for war or peace, is too dangerous for the well being of our Planet.

This tragedy sends a very powerful message that nuclear energy is too dangerous for our civilization for thousands of years and we must look for alternatives that are safe for our planet.

As Earth day 2014 approaches please remember what happened in Japan as well as well as in Chernobyl.

The main feature of this special program paying tribute to the resilience of the Japanese people and composers will be the Symphony No. 1 "Hiroshima"  thought to be written by Mamoru Samuragochi.
Earlier this year the real composer, Takashi Niigaki, had revealed that for almost 20 years he was the ghost writer for Mamoru Samuragochi.
The Symphony No. 1 "Hiroshima" is a major symphonic work written in a late Romantic style. To read more about this incredible musical scandal please click the link

Here are the other highlights for this program:
Triptyque for String Orchestra by Yasushi Akutagawa (1925-1989)
The Chronicle of 3776 Meters (2003) by Shin-Ichiro Ikebe (1943- )
Compositiion for Chorus No. 4 "Children's Field' by Michio Mamiya (1929- )
Toward the Night by Somei Satoh (1947- )
