Composer and pianist Ryuichi Sakamoto will perform today, December 11, 2022, a solo piano concert entitled “Ryuichi Sakamoto: Playing the Piano 2022”, which will be streamed to the world in a very special way, due to his ongoing cancer treatment.
Sakamoto’s solo piano performance will be streamed in the form of a concert, however, what we will experience is carefully recorded footage of Sakamoto performing a few pieces of music each day over the course of a week, which was then thoughtfully edited together.
Sakamoto, announced this year that he is battling stage 4 cancer (read more), and in his words: “I no longer have the energy to do live concerts… This might be the last time that you will see me perform in this manner.”
Tickets for this special concert, priced at 4.000 JPY or 30 USD, are available at the official website:
