Sunday, 28 March 2021 – Today I stayed at home for a day and listened to Schumann’s great works

Good evening from Tokyo after the second state of emergency was lifted.
Day 7 after the lifting.

Today in Tokyo, it was the nasty weather. Last several days, I’ve got very early morning and taken a lot of cherry blossoms photos. I was very tired. So, today I stayed at home for a day and listened to Schumann’s great works.

Der Rose Pilgerfahrt, op. 112
Nachtlied, op. 108

Christoph Spering, conductor
Das Neue Orchester
Chorus Musicus KΓΆln
1996, Opus 111

Szenen aus Goethes “Faust”

Daniel Harding, conductor
Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks

Today I post here the cherry blossoms photos that I took yesterday in the park. I believe these cherry blossom trees are the variety called Yama-zakura (山摜, Cerasus jamasakura). The Yama-zakura is Japan’s endemic species. It’s one of the original species of Japanese cherry trees. Until the beginning of the Meiji era (1868-1912), i.e. until the end of the 19th century, people went to view the Yama-zakura, not Somei-yoshino, for their Hanami (flower viewing).

I haven’t written about Hanami yet. Tomorrow, if there is no big news, I want to write about Hanami.

Have a nice dream. Good night.

Wear a mask and wash your hands.
Stay safe and healthy πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜·πŸ––πŸ––πŸ––πŸ––πŸ––
