“Books and music are the two biggest parts in my life.” Even after turning himself from a jazz café owner into a full-time writer, Murakami Haruki has never left music. He appreciates classical, jazz, rock & roll, and these music can be found in his works. There are lyrics of the rock songs for readers to follow, and for jazz music, we can look it up in Portrait in Jazz, one of his works. As for classical music, it is often naturally ignored or skipped since it is usually regarded difficult to be understood. But now, we can flip this situation! Following the widely lauded Musical Murakami Haruki three years ago, the tour from Taiwan, Hong Kong, to China, NSO will take you to further exploration. From his latest novel, Killing Commendatore, to his essays and critics, we will introduce the Murakami Haruki's classical music reference and his point of view, making you not only knowing them but knowing how. Let’s listen to music, while reading the Murakami Haruki!
