この演奏は、奈良佐保短期大学のサテライトキャンパスの
2012年度後期サテライト講座『命の調べに耳を澄ます―薩摩琵琶―』と題して、奈良女子大学内の佐保会館にて行われたものです。
平家物語のテーマである『諸行無常』は、時代を超えて現代に生きる我々にも生きることの意味を考えさせるものだと思います。
今回演奏させていただいた『扇の的』は、多くのベテランの武将たちがいる中選ばれた
まだ若い那須与一が一矢に命を懸ける物語です。
一矢に命を懸ける那須与一の命の輝きを感じてください。

 

This concert was held at Saho-Kankan of Nara Women's University in 2012, as the second semester satellite lecture of Satellite campus, Nara Saho college. The title of the lecture is " Listen to the sound of life - Satsuma Biwa-".
The theme of Heike Monogatari, "The tale of Heike" is impermanence of the world. Though the story itself is very old, but the message of it is omnipresent and it makes us think what the life is all about - the true meaning of life.
The song I played is "Ougi no Mato", " The fan target", is about Nasu no Yoichi, a young archer who was summoned among well-experienced commanders, staking his life on one arrow.
I hope you feel the spark of one man's life, when he puts all his heart in releasing one single arrow.
