天地真理48-2 Tsujii's overseas operations

After I wrote the previous articles about Tsujii-san, I was informed the two facts.

Firstly, the two labels named
Challenge Classics and PID began to sell Tsujii's CDs at reasonable prices in U.S. and Europe.
I asked avex-Classics about these labels.
They let me know that
Challenge Classics is a Dutch label, and PID is its affiliate to import and sell its CDs in U.S..
Both are legitimate companies which are licensed from avex-Classics.
Their CDs are a little expensive compared with those of major labels,
but they are quite reasonable compared with imported CDs directly from Japan.
They seem to be attached English liner notes, too.
So, I think it is a great progress.

I revise the previous articles here.


Secondly, Liu-san let me know a good news.
Avex Group Holdings announced a new subsidiary establishment.

It says as follow:
   -
Avex Classics International Inc. will be established on October 3rd.
   - The CEO will be Hiroyuki Nakajima.

       (who was introduced as a recording producer in the TV program "Takeshi Art Beat".)

   - Businesses are discovering, development, management, concert planning and producing master recordings of classical artists, including overseas operations.
   - There will be five staffs who have wide experiences and human networks in the classical music field.
   - Nobuyuki Tsujii will belongs to it as a contracted artist.
   - This is a result of the first project calling for new businesses in the company.



We can realize two points from this announcement.
   -
Avex Group admitted Tsujii-san as a core person for a new business and decided to focus on it.
   -
Avex Group laid out the framework that will allow Tsujii-san to actively perform in overseas as a classical music artist.
   
I heard that major labels occupy famous artists, halls, conductors and orchestras.
So it will be a tough challenge for the new company to enter
overseas operations.
But I can appreciate that Avex Group indicated a definite attitude to do their best for Tsujii-san in a classical field.
I hope from the bottom of my heart that the new company will make strenuous efforts and succeed in
leading Tsujii-san to a worldwide virtuoso.

Shin-san,

It is great to hear that Avex Classics has been responsive to your input! I take that as a very good sign. Thank you again for writing to them so effectively.

Although I had hoped that Tsujii-san would sign with a more established international label such as EMI (Evgeny Kissin), Sony (Murray Perahia) and Deutsche Grammophon (Krystian Zimerman), I recognize that Tsujii-san is a special case because he requires special accommodations when he travels. I have spoken to two managers of Avex Classics who traveled with Tsujii-san while he toured this country, and felt that they are caring people who can be trusted to look after Tsujii-san.

It is a brave move on the part of Avex to try to forge an entry into the international market, which is dominated by established major labels. But it is a great nod to Tsujii-san that a subsidiary is to be created to -- at least for now -- primarily serve him.

I wish Avex Classics International great success. And as one who resides in the United States, I look forward to enjoying the fruits of its efforts very soon.

Liu-san,
Of course things have already been starting before my action,
but they would accept our opinions as a tail wind for their new project.

The support for the handicap of Tsujii-san is an important role of them.
And I feel they have been doing well at this point until now.
It is not easy to crack the world of established international labels.
I hope they will make steady progress to meet fans' expectations outside Japan.
Your suggestions to the new subsidiary must be all the more valuable.
Best regards,
