-- Neeme Järvi, August 2021

While focusing on arranging and publishing music due to the corona crisis, he was the only Japanese finalist in the 2020 Nikisch International Conducting Competition (video screening), and was invited to the preliminary screening members of the competition in 2021. At the same time, he is working hard at Neme Järvi's Zoom conducting master class.

As a conductor, he has frequently performed as a conductor at the Japan Croatian Music Association's regular meetings, and at the 2019 Papandopuro Sinfonietta, he said, ``The content is wonderful, with nobility, romance, and folklore elements added. From the beginning, the performance unfolded in such a way that it could be played.” “It was full of energy, and the sense of neoclassical style was well expressed.” In Sorkocevic's symphony, he succeeded in conveying "charming melancholy (of the slow movement)" and "Italian brightness and a style that makes you feel somewhat charming" (both from Mr. Kyosuke Hasegawa's criticism).

The piano recital was described as "a very eloquent and three-dimensional impression that makes good use of dynamic playing techniques", and "each song brings out its own characteristics, and the piano as an instrument has a rich expressiveness that rivals that of an orchestra." It made me feel once again that there is something to be said about it.”
