Japanese pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto to perform in Hanoi

A jazz concert featuring famous Japanese pianist Tsuyoshi Yamamoto will be held at Hanoi Opera House on December 10.

Yamamoto and his band will perform the most famous works, such as “The Way We Are”, “Autumn in Seattle”, “Misty”, “Romeo and Juliet”, “Sound of music Medley”… in the music night themed “Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Live in Concert”.

The Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio offers just such a mood. Yamamoto is highly musical and his expressions natural. Neither overly technical nor overly serious, and his performance is relaxed and melodious.Tsuyoshi Yamamoto was born in 1946. He started to play the piano when he was in primary school. In junior high school, he played the trumpet. His interest in jazz began when he first heard Art Blakey’s tunes in the French movie, “Les Liaisons Dangereuses”. It inspired him to return to the piano, to perfect his technique.

In l973, he formed his own band, the Tsuyoshi Yamamoto Trio with Isoo Fukui on bass and Tetsujiro Obara on drums.
