He has mentioned his visit here 6 years ago. It was May 6 years ago. I might have written about his visit somewhere else in this blog. It was a really nice eye ball here. Since it was the day of orchestra practice, I had to take him that event at a hall located in the midst of farms here. He remembered of that. We were practising the Nr2 Symphony by Brahms at that time. I was sorry I had him waste his precious time in Japan listening to us and walking around. Yes, it was a beautiful late spring day then. I hoped he had enjoyed the beautiful scenary around the practice hall at that time.
He kidded me saying don't try to convert him to Brahms. He is an firm admirer in Baroque music, I know. I told him I knew that but always recvall of the 2nd theme of the 1st movement in this symphony. It is a music of this season when a breeze, stirring the fresh leaves of trees, would touch our face gently.
So it was not my intention to make him a fan of Brahms. I just wanted to tell him, whenever recalling of his visit, that tune came into my mind.
