Hi, I’m a Japanese, & there is a few Japanese comment.
So I want to make sure for what this concert was held.
This concert was held after big earth quake and tsunami hit Japan & many people more than the people who joined this concert…
This is the requiem for the dead people, and also cheer from the people other areas where didn’t suffer severe damage.
So this concert was really special for us.

And I got the real meaning of the ward “soulful”.
Most of us really moved and got power from this concert.

I really respect who joined this concert & Beethoven.

My English is still bad, but hope some people understand the real meaning for this concert.
