‘Delius in Japan’

Violinist Midori Komachi discusses her Japanese translation of Eric Fenby’s classic book of recollections, ‘Delius as I Knew Him’, and her experiences of performing Delius in Japan in conversation with BBC Radio 3 broadcaster, Nick Luscombe, 
plus live performances from Midori with pianist Simon Callaghan.

“The most interesting publishing project at the moment”, according to the Delius Trust, is a Japanese translation of Fenby's ‘Delius as I Knew Him’ by violinist, Midori Komachi. NHK - the Japanese equivalent of the BBC - is making a documentary about Midori’s fascination for the music of Delius and her translation project, for which they have filmed at the Delius Trust.

Following her acclaimed project on ‘Delius and Gauguin’, Midori Komachi will give a unique perspective on Delius’s impact on Japanese audiences and will be joined by Nick Luscombe (from BBC Radio 3’s ‘Late Junction’), who is currently collaborating with her on Anglo-Japanese projects.  The discussion will be followed by a live recital performed by Midori Komachi (violin) and Simon Callaghan (piano), to include performances of Delius’s Sonata in B major (Op. Posth.), Sonata No.3, and Midori’s own arrangement of ‘To be sung of a Summer Night on the Water’.
