 ✨ А unique multimedia concert on April 27th will take place at 7.00 pm in the prestigious Arno Babajanyan Concert Hall in the heart of Yerevan. “Howl’s Moving Castle”, “Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind”, “Spirited Away”, and “My Neighbor Totoro” - you will hear fantastically charming soundtracks from world-famous animations by the greatest modern Japanese composer, Jo Hisaishi. Plunge into the world of fantastic music in the heartfelt, most colourful performance of the contemporary orchestra Mystery Ensemble. Delight for the whole family is guaranteed.

 Throughout his long career, Hisaishi has worked extensively on music for film, anime, computer games, television and advertising. He also created the music for the 1998 Paralympic Games in Nagano. Hisaishi's most famous works are for the cult films of Takeshi Kitano and, of course, for the cartoons of Hayao Miyazaki.

 Hisaishi and Miyazaki are a union of equal brilliant creators. You will never understand for sure: Miyazaki's films became brilliant thanks to Hisaishi's music or Hisaishi's music became brilliant thanks to Miyazaki's films.

 An unusually beautiful concert with fantastically spectacular videos in the atmospheric interiors of the hall on a cozy spring evening!

 Jo Hisaishi is one of the most famous Japanese composers. He released his first album 'Information' in 1982. In 1983, Isao Takahata recommended the young composer Hayao Miyazaki to write the accompanying album for the manga Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Miyazaki liked Hisaishi's work so much that he invited him to write music for the film Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind. Hisaishi's work on Nausicaa made him famous. In gratitude, he worked on all of Miyazaki's subsequent films.

Hisaishi received a record number of times (four) Japanese Film Academy Awards in the category “Best Film Music”. Three of them are awards for music for Takeshi Kitano’s films: “Sonatine” (1993), “The Boys Are Back” (1996), “Fireworks” (1997). He also composed the soundtracks for Kitano's films Scenes by the Sea (1992), Kikujiro (1999), Brother of the Yakuza (2001), Dolls (2002) and Yamato (2005).
