BIWAKO HALL Vocal Ensemble 70th Regular Concert
The 70th regular concert will be an all-Rossini program performed by the BIWAKO HALL Vocal Ensemble under conductor Shuji Okawa. The concert will introduce non-operatic vocal pieces composed by Rossini, who is generally known as an opera composer. Stabat Mater, a Christian hymn to Mary that portrays her suffering, is a dramatic, operatic piece with a beautiful melody that only Rossini could have written. In the precise performance by Shuji Okawa and the Vocal Ensemble, you will encounter a new aspect of Rossini.
