Tokyo Bunka Kaikan, Small HallTokyo


Once he captures you, he never lets go.
The music he plays has a latent "magic" that reminds one of the gaze of a top-notch stage actor when he gazes at a single point. Gone are the days when a superhuman circus act performed on a large contrabass instrument could draw crowds. Ryutaro Shide is far beyond that. His overwhelming technique, which allows him to freely manipulate low notes that make even the audience tremble, as well as the brilliant high notes that penetrate through the audience, is not an end in itself, but rather a "key" elaborately crafted to open his music. His music is spun together with a boyish childishness at times, with a feral intensity at others, and with an allure as if he were speaking intimately to his lover at other times. It does not matter if you do not know anything about the double bass or the music. His expression has a "magical power" that captures the listener's attention and does not let go.
