Do you refrain from playing due to a disability? "The Piano Paralympics" is an intentional piano music festival for pianists who have overcome greate challenges. We are encouraging all pianists with a disability to challenge themselves to express their musical feelings through the piano and share the enjoyment of making music with the audience togther. If shall not be forgotten that Ludwig von Beethoven who became deaf has left us a great inheritance of his music. The career of Pianists Paul Wittgenstein, who had lost his right hand in World War I, was reborn as the "Pianist of the left hand", and remains as one of the greatest pianists in history of music. The famous Japanese Koto player (Koto is a traditional Japanese string instrument). Michio Miyagi, who had a visual disability, is known very well for having laid the foundations of this Japanese instrument and to give the roots to Japanese traditional music. Beatiful and heatfelt music can be produced by a sensitive and keen artist even with a hearing impairment, a pianist with one hand, or a pianists who create music with just a single finger. We would like to welcome all and establish a world-wide piano music festival filled with new ideas to overcome the impossiblities. Let us say that possiblities of the human ability is unlimited. The real purpose is not to compete for superioriy but to encourage, appreciate and praise special skills through music and to bring awareness of such achivements. Through this kinds of international exchange we also believe that we can contribute to World Peace.
