Naxos’s Takako Nishizaki Plays Suzuki Evergreens albums feature acclaimed violinist Takako Nishizaki who, as a child, studied with her father, Shinji, and with Shinichi Suzuki himself. Her father was active in the early stages of the development of the Suzuki® Method and for many years taught at the Matsumoto summer school and organised the Suzuki activities in the Nagoya area after Shinichi Suzuki had moved to Matsumoto. Takako Nishizaki was the first student to complete the now famous Suzuki® course and was awarded a teacher’s diploma at the tender age of nine.

® Suzuki is a trademark of the International Suzuki Association and the Suzuki Violin School music books are published by Alfred Publishing Co. Inc.


   




Review By Natalie Wickham,Music Matters Blog,October 2010

Early on in my teaching, I began hearing about the Suzuki method. I did some preliminary research and was fascinated by the concept and approach. So, I decided to go a step further and went to a Suzuki Institute. What an incredible experience! Even though I ultimately decided to adopt a more traditional approach for my studio, some of the principles I learned at the Institute have greatly influenced my teaching. The Suzuki teaching philosophy is named after its founder, Shinichi Suzuki, and has become the preferred method for most string students. I personally don’t think it is as effective for piano, but wow is it impressive to see the musicianship of those little string players on their tiny instruments!

The late Shinichi Suzuki (1898-1998), great music educator, maintained that as a child acquires language skills, so can he or she acquire the language of music, regardless of aptitude or talent. "All children in the world show their splendid capacities by speaking and understanding their mother language, thus displaying the original power of the human mind...children, taken without previous aptitude or tests of any kind, have almost without exception made great progress..." The gift of music leads children to develop into richer human beings. Living proof of this truth is Takako Nishizaki, who at the ripe old age of eight(!) became the first Suzuki Method music student to graduate with a teacher's degree. She went on to become a musical superstar and one of the most frequently recorded violinists. In this set of seven discs, one can hear samples of the repertoire employed, and included is a fascinating pictorial history of Ms. Nishizaki's musical odyssey.
