Ang and I just got back from a night out at the beautiful Shanghai Grand Theatre listening to Joe Hisashi lead the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra. A whole lotta fun. Music from Miyazaki and Beat Takeshi movies.
I loved him playing Summer, the theme from Kikujiro, as a piano solo. Made me miss Dad, in a moving, reassuring way that reminded me of how lucky I was to have had him as long as I did. Angie's favorite was the second encore which wasn't listed in the program, wait for it... the theme from Totoro!
We liked it so much, we even bought the cd they were selling. Imagine that, buying a legal cd here in Shanghai!
