Kitarrilegend

Kazuhito Yamashita (Jaapan)

“Yamashita on fenomenaalse andega kitarrist kes suudab muuta ka kõige tavalisemad etüüdid erakordseteks muusikalisteks rännakuteks.”

Sir James Galway

Legendaarne Jaapani kitarrist Kazuhito Yamashita on üks meie aja  kõige hinnatumaid kitarriste, kelle julgetel artistlikel visioonidel pole piire. Yamashita alustas kitarri õppimist kaheksa aastaselt oma isa Toru Yamashita juhendamisel. Tema rahvusvaheline karjäär algas kolme oluliseima konkursi võiduga, Ramirez’i konkurss Hispaanias, Alessandria konkurss Itaalias ja Radio France konkurss Pariisis. Yamashita oli siis vaid 16 aastane.

Sellest ajast on ta salvestanud üle 80’ne albumi. Tema julgete artistlike visioonide tulemusel on sündinud meisterlikud arranžeeringud suurteostest, mida peeti võimatuks kitarril mängida. Nimetame siin vaid mõned - Mussorgsky “Pildid näituselt”, Dvorak’i Sümfoonia “Uuest ilmast” , Stravinski “Tulilind” või Rimsky-Korsakovi “Scheherazade”. 1989 aastal toimusid Casals Hall'is Tokios kaheksateistkümne kuu jooksul seitse kontserti, kus Yamashita mängis suurteoseid. Sarja kõrghetkeks sai Castelnuovo-Tedesco “24 Caprichos de Goya” esitus ühel õhtul. Kontserdiseeria lõppes Bachi kuue sonaadi ja partiita esitamisega kahel järjestikusel õhtul. Eduka kontserdisarjaga  jätkati ka mitmel hilisemal hooajal.

Ta on andnud soolokontserde üle maailma mainekates saalides, nagu Lincoln Center, Chicago Symphony Center Orchestra Hall, Peterburi Filharmoonia Suur Saal, Teatro Olympico ning esinenud koos erinevate mainekate orkestrite ja dirigentidega Euroopas, Põhja-Ameerikas ja Aasias.

Yamashita sagedased partnerid on Leonard Slatkin, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Antoni Ros Marbà, Garcia Navarro, Pedro Halffter, Hiroyuki Iwaki, NHK Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Orquesta de la RTVE, Claudio Scimone e I Solisti Veneti, James Galway, Gary Karr,  Michaela Petri, The Tokyo String Quartet ja paljud teised. Santo Tirso Rahvusvahelisel Kitarrifestivalil 1997 esitas Yamashita järjestikku neli kitarrikontserti ühe õhtuga koos Cordoba orkestriga Leo Brouwer’i juhatusel.
