in City of Shizuoka - October, 2000, at night

from Touring Japan with Florestan, October 2000, page 92:

The concert hall in Shizuoka is another impressive one, with a gorgeous Steinway. Here the audience reaction is noticeable more provincial, however. The concert goes really well (by which I mean that we play well) but the audience response is formulaic, well-mannered. Two friends in the audience tell us afterwards that our programme of Fauré, Schumann and Ravel trios was too esoteric for 'an uneducated audience'. Strangely, this programme was a request of the Japanese promoter.
