The novel "Honey Bees and Distant Thunder" by Riku Onda was filmed

The novel "Mitsubachi to Enrai" ("Honey bees and Distant Thunder") by Riku Onda - which won the Naoki Award and Japan Booksellers Award Grand Prize - was filmed by Kei Ishikawa. I had the great honor to play the music for Aya Eiden (who is the central figure in the novel). The composer Dai Fujikura composed for this movie a piano solo piece "Spring and Asura". "LISTEN TO THE UNIVERSE" (the english title of the movie) will be shown from October 4th in japanese ciemenas.

By filming this novel which is about an international piano competition, I wish that the soul, the passion and the love to music of young musicians will be clearly and better received by the public.
