Freiburg/Berlin, 27.09.2023 (PresseBox) - Next year, the renowned composer and pianist Joe Hisaishi will perform music from the famous Japanese animation studio Ghibli on May 23 in Düsseldorf and on May 25 in Munich. Advance ticket sales start this Friday at 14:00 exclusively at Reservix. Hisaishi gained fame through his many years of impressive collaboration with the Oscar-winning director Hayao Miyazaki (Studio Ghibli).

Hisaishi's daughter Mai Fujisawa (known as Mai), a talented and successful singer-songwriter, will also be taking part. Her personal style is characterized by a combination of folk elements, gentle melodies and haunting vocals. In addition to three studio albums released to date, Mai has collaborated with her father on soundtracks on numerous occasions, many of them for the Ghibli animation house ("The Castle in the Sky" and "The Walking Castle").

As a fascinating concert production, Joe Hisaishi's famous compositions from films such as "Princess Mononoke", "My Neighbor Totoro" and the award-winning "Spirited Away" are brought to life together with the Munich Symphony Orchestra and the Munich Motet Choir. While selected sequences are projected onto a giant screen, a 140-strong choir and orchestra ensemble provides the musical backdrop with fantastic sounds. This audiovisual spectacle has already enjoyed great success in Tokyo, New York, Los Angeles and Melbourne. Just last week, Hisaishi performed for two evenings in front of around 25,000 guests in the completely sold-out Ovo Arena in Wembley.
