The Japanese professor plays the cello for us. He is a skilled medical doctor and surgeon, but his cello performance is just as good as it can be after three years of practise. So we admired more his brave performance in open air public, in a country where the cello and its ancestors are at home for centuries, and maybe not so much the musical qualities of his play.

After he was finished, we talked a bit about music in general and why he is so enthusiastic about the cello. “Japanese people love classical music” he explained. When I promised to play the Shakuhachi for him in return for his cello concert next time I come to Japan, he was seriously taken aback: “Shakuhachi … that is Japanese instrument. Western people can really play …?”.

Well … maybe, if they are brave enough …? I don’t like music, I love it …
