OF NOTE

Early Italian music in Tokyo

Renaissance music will be the central theme of a lecture and concert to be held at Tokyo National Museum on Nov. 8.

Those purchasing tickets for the event will receive free tickets to see the museum's permanent exhibition.

Hiroko Kishimoto, professor at Showa Academia Musicae, will give a lecture (in Japanese), to be followed by a performance by Anthonello, an early-music group comprising three instrumentalists and three singers.

The event, which is part of the "NEC Early Music Series," will focus on the music of Luca Marenzio (1553-99) and Claudio Monteverdi (1567-1643).

"Runessansu Uta Monogatari -- Ongaku to Kotoba (A Story of Renaissance Songs -- Music and Language)" will be held Nov. 8, from 2 p.m. and 7 p.m., in the Heiseikan Building of Tokyo National Museum. Tickets -- 3,000 yen for adults and 1,500 yen for students -- can be ordered by calling (03) 3901-1573. The Tokyo National Museum (13-9 Ueno Koen, Taito-ku; tel.
