Matsumoto Zenzoo: Addendum 松本善三

February 5, 2011 at 12:20 PM

Matsumoto Zenzô also played piano trio with the cellist Yoshida Tadayoshi and the German harpsichordist and pianist Eta Harich-Schneider, who pioneered research into Japanese music after WW2. (See http://www.bach-cantatas.com/Bio/Harich-Eta.htm) Talk about remarkable female musicians! Her History of Japanese Music (Oxford University Press, 1973) is still unrivalled. In her autobiography she speaks highly of her Japanese fellow-players (unlike many other colleagues, whom she slags off). Apparently they worked through the entire classical piano trio literature during the war years and may well have been the best piano trio in Japan at the time.
