One of our repertoires "Swan"

This is Swan composed by Saint Saens, French composer. This has been one of our favourite pieces!

For the first time we played it, we were running late for Open Mic in Gioia Mia and rushing into there from Niigata uni Ikarashi Campus. So(?) our play ended up with tempo allegro. Ms. Kawamura (from Castoir muse) described this as "Speedy Swan" lol! Indeed, it was way too fast. Gradually our Swan was becoming calmer and calmer ;))

This video clip is from the Jazz Street Festival which took place in January 2009. AJ is explaining in Japanese in the clip if it can be a "duck" not a "Speedy Swan".

    Sorry for belated response and thank you for your comment(esp. duck part!)! I think you are the first one to have given us a comment on this blog :))

    This piece has been one of our favourites, I hope to play it in Costa Rica, if we can get a chance :)
