- Synopsis / Plot
- Joe Hisaishi in Budokan (Hisaishi Jo in Budoukan) was a concert given on 4 and 5 (plus an added performance on 6) August 2008 at Tokyo's 14,000-seat Nippon Budoukan venue commemorating both the Japanese theatrical premiere of Ponyo and the 25 years of musical collaboration between composer Joe Hisaishi and film maker Hayao Miyazaki.
This massive concert featured performances of these signature Miyazaki film scores composed by Hisaishi, conducting from the piano, and the 200-member New Japan Philharmonic World Dream Orchestra, along with six featured vocalists, the 800 combined voices of the Ippan Koubo, Ritsuyuukai and Little Singers of Tokyo choirs, plus a 160-piece marching band. Altogether there were some 1160 musicians and singers on stage, backed by images from Miyazaki's films projected on a giant screen.
These performances were recorded and broadcast by NHK in two versions - an edited 1-hour version aired on NHK on 31 August, and the full concert aired on the NHK satellite channel BS2 on 23 September 2008. Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment released R2 DVD and Blu-ray versions of this 2-hour concert in Japan on 3 July 2009.
