Grants Taketa holds lobby concerts for parents and children of child-rearing age, as well as for those who just want to drop by and enjoy live music. This project was born out of the desire for everyone, from children to adults, to feel free to come to Glanz at any time. This time, we welcomed Masaki Ikuno, a young viola player who is attracting the most attention at the moment, and held a Valentine's Day concert filled with sweet sounds.
The entire program (including encores) is included in this website.

The role of the soloist and piano ensemble is to help and enliven the soloist, so I hope that the audience will be able to see how the two of us create music together while leaning on him (Mr. Ikuno).
(In the future) （
In the future, I hope that the audience will be able to see how the two of us create music together while staying close to him (Ikuno-san).
The basic principle of arranging is to take a melody that you know from the original and add melody and accompaniment with the viola and piano (as in this case). I'm hoping to be able to do this without destroying the goodness of the original, and to what extent I can bring out its interesting charm and give it a different taste.
It was a good experience for me to listen to the live sound and resonance up close.
It was so good! It was the best concert I've ever heard!
The trinity of the player, the arrangement and the music was wonderful!
