Lucilin - "The Raven" CD release special concert

Published Saturday October 03 2015

On 1 October 2015, the Luxembourg Embassy in Tokyo, in cooperation with the Okamura Company, Naxos Japan and Music LX Japan, organised a concert at the Residence of the Ambassador in order to mark the release of « The Raven », an album by the contemporary music ensemble LUCILIN from Luxembourg.


This Monodrame for a female voice and ensemble is a piece that was commissioned by the LUCILIN Ensemble to the renown Japanese composer Toshio Hosokawa (*1955). The ensemble and the composer already had the opportunity to collaborate together on a number of occasions. In 2005 for instance LUCILIN toured Japan for a series of concerts that marked the 50th birthday of Toshio Hosokawa.


The CD was recorded in Hiroshima in October 2014, during LUCILIN’s latest Japan tour and its release coincides this time with the 60th birthday of the composer.


The event at the Residence took place in presence of Mr. Hosokawa and three musicians representing the LUCILIN Ensemble and it ended with a reception given by the Ambassador.
