World premiere of Ichiro Nohira's "Two Portraits" for cello and piano in the Chamber Music Series at the Opera de Lyon.

[…] and the passage from the abyss of No. 5 to the exaltation of No. 6 is also particularly memorable. It is a great pleasure to know this extraordinary cellist in such a happy way. 》(Jiro Hamada "Record Geijutsu" May 2005 Semi-Special)
