'The Piano Concerto No.5 in E-flat major' was composed by German famous composer Ludwig van Beethoven. This Concerto is well known as the 'Emperor Concerto'. This music is very gorgeous as called 'Emperor'.

This name 'Emperor' was not named by Beethoven. However it is said that the reason that this concerto is called 'Emperor' is as follows.
1.This concerto imagines Emperor.

2.This concerto's scale and content is more great than any Piano Concerto. This concerto is natural in exactly 'Emperor.

3.The soldier listened to the first performance of this concerto was impressed and shouted "This is the Emperor !"
I think that this concerto is very wonderful. This concerto is exactly an 'Emperor'!

Beethoven is aristocrat?

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

Ludwig van Beethoven is a great composer in Germany. I like his music very much. By the way, Beethoven is not aristocrat. However Beethoven and his neighbor misidentified him an aristocrat. Why?

The name of the aristocrat in Germany include 'von' well.
Helmuth Karl Bernhard Graf von Moltke
Manfred von Richthofen
Ferdinand Graf von Zeppelin
And, Beethoven's name include 'van'. 'van' is Dutch language that means English 'of' German 'von'. Why does Beethoven's name include Dutch 'van'? Because his grandfather came from Flanders(now Belgium).

Dutch 'van' is not aristocrat but German 'von' is aristocrat. However the German at that time confused Dutch 'van' with German 'von'. As a result, Beethoven and his neighbor misidentified him an aristocrat.

Chinese is barbarous!

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

16th January, 2008, Chinese assaulted the Japanese at Yasukuni Shrine in Japan. Yasukuni Shrine is a sacred place like the national cemetery for killed in action.

That day the elderly Japanese of 80 years old who had the national flag of Japan visited Yasukuni Shrine. Chinese (He came from China to Japan by the travel) who had seen it deprived of the national flag of Japan from him. And, the Chinese trampled down the national flag of Japan by the foot, and broke the flagpole. Afterwards, the Chinese hurt two Japanese. The Chinese was arrested by the Japanese police.

Because Yasukuni Shrine is a place concerning the war, China that fought against Japan before is hated place. However, violence like this is not permitted! Chinese is barbarous! I am getting very very angry at Chinese who perpetrated a crime in a sacred place in Japan! I protest against China as a Japanese.

What do you think of this?

FREDERIQUE CONSTANT[Chronograph]

Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

I introduce my Watch Collections to you.

FREDERIQUE CONSTANTFREDERIQUE CONSTANTFREDERIQUE CONSTANTFREDERIQUE CONSTANT
[Brand] FREDERIQUE CONSTANT (Made in Switzerland)
[Model] Classics Index Chronograph(STAS VALJOUX?)
[Movement] Automatic
[Impression]
I bought the chronograph for the first time. This is the chronograph. The chronograph is a watch equipped with the stopwatch function. Therefore, the structure of the movement is complex. And, the movement is thick, large and heavy. I have worn the large, heavy wristwatch for the first time. I think that the chronograph function of this watch is convenient. My height is 180cm and my weight is 90kg. But, I like thin, light, and elegant watch. This watch(chronograph) is too heavy for me. I hope the chronograph will be thinner, lighter, and elegant.
