Fukushima, two years later. Conceived as a show of solidarity with Japan by composer Simon Bertrand and flautist Claire Marchand, this concert, also featuring Japanese musicians Takinojo Mochizuki and Yoshizumi Koyohide, was initially aimed at helping victims of the 2011 earthquake. The artists bring us a fresh opportunity to gain an awareness of the Japanese catastrophe in a moment of collective reflection.
