This melody was written and performed by Pianist-Composer Nobuyuki Mizuoka and released on his 2009 album “旅人星 (Tabibitoboshi ー Wanderer’s Star).” To illustrate the live performance in this video, I used a number of my photographs of scenes taken during the height of the cherryblossom season in Hibiya Park, Tokyo.🌺 The weeping cherry trees are particularly glorious!
Mizuoka-san has a bottomless creative capability that may very well catapult him to great heights as an international-caliber composer-arranger. And how wonderful it would be for that to happen in time for the 2020 Olympics!
