Yoshimichi Hamada, Recorder & Cornett

Yoshimichi Hamada was born into a family of musicians in Tokyo as a great-grandson of the founder of Japanese first private music college, the Toyo Music Academy (the forerunner of the Tokyo College of Music). He studied recorder with Kazuo Hanaoka and graduated from the Period-instrument course of the Toho Gakuen College Music Department; and then he won a scholarship from the Swiss government and entered the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis to study cornett with Bruce Dickey, as well as medieval music theory with Crowford Young and Dominique Verart. He joined many CD recordings which are much appraised. While in Europe, he collaborated with such leading early music groups as Concerto Palatino, Ensemble PAN, and Ensemble La Fenice in concerts and recordings. In Japan, he works extensively to propagate pre-baroque music and instruments, which are still not famous, through various activities – for instance joining into the soundtracks of the film “Rikyu”, the animations “Mimi wo sumaseba (Whisper of the Heart)” and “Tegamibachi”; he also appeared in the NHK-TV sagas “Nobunaga” and “Hideyoshi”.
In recent years, Yoshimichi Hamada devotes himself to the productions of early opera works; in 2008, he conducted “L’Orfeo” of Claudio Monteverdi. In 2010, he appeared as conductor of “La Calisto”, an opera of Francesco Cavalli. In 2013, he started the project “Opera Fresca” to perform baroque operas such as three great works of C. Monteverdi, as well as the Japan premier of Giulio Caccini’s “L’Euridice” (the oldest “opera” music in the world still extant). Besides striking activities in the world of early music, he frequently works together with musicians of other genres, such as jazz. His vivid and free improvisation reminds us of the charms and thrills which early music must have had. He trains the next generation in wide areas, not limited to the instruction of recorder and cornett, but also of vocal music, chorus, and interpretation of medieval, Renaissance, and early baroque music.
To date, he taught at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts (Faculty of Music – recorder course of the Early Music Department) and gave masterclasses for the Tokyo Nikikai Opera Foundation. He is the permanent conductor of vocal ensemble La Voce Orfica.
