Intermezzo with Shingo Matsuura
Shingo Matsuura has a very diverse and broad musical background. He plays many instruments, including the bandoneon, saxophone and piano, and followed masterclasses and lessons in Japan, France, Switzerland, Austria and Argentina. He finished his Masters of Composition at the Osaka College of Music in Japan.
His composition ‘Midnight’, for piano and saxophone quartet, won the first prize at the 2nd International Alkema Composition Contest in the Netherlands in 2014. Shingo tried to put the materials of hardcore club music (especially European house and techno music) into this composition. He created a piece with powerful forces, relentless repeated rhythms and sharp accents.
