From Masako Hayashi
Hello! I'm Masako Hayashi.
I am a bit puzzled how I can introduce myself to you. I simply have been describing myself as an opera singer. Things are changing, though, as I recently released my first album entitled "Fantasma II", in which I sing some of rock masterpieces of 60's and 70's, backed by orchestra !
I have always been in the world of classical music ever since I can remember, and my close encounter of another kind was just exciting to me. I believe stronger than ever that music has no boundaries !
How can I explain what I'm feeling now ? I'm feeling just like a captain before his first voyage, a bear that has waken up after a long winter sleep (!?) or rather, a little girl on her first day of school, standing under cherry trees... My heart beats in excitement, and a little bit of anxiousness, for what lies in front of me.
I'll be happy if you give a listen to my album that was released when cherry trees were in full blossom in Japan, and hope one day we will meet at a concert or a theater somewhere in the world. That would be really fantastic !
