Actively performing not only in orchestras or solo but also focusing on chamber music in various styles ranging from woodwind quintets to trio d'anches to piano trios.


From the Baroque to contemporary.
For bassoon repertoire, I am working on unaccompanied pieces, sonatas, concertos originally written for bassoon, and other pieces written for other wind and string instruments.
I am also working on contrabassoon solo pieces, being drawn to the instrument, which is mostly unfamiliar in Japan.
