A concert of classical music

Today I went to a certain hall in Tokyo to enjoy the concert of classical music. This is the first time I went to Tokyo (or, just outside of Yokohama) - and enjoy the live classical music during this 5 month. Recently the regulation on big event has been loosened and now they can hold concerts in halls with audiences if they follow some rules. Where I went today is one of the best halls in Japan just for classical music, it has about 2000 seats, but maybe less than 400 people were in the hall today I think - needless to say, to keep the social distance each other. But because there were much spaces the sound was really wonderful. The concert was shorter than usual, just two pieces of music. Brandenburg Concerto No.3 by J.S.Bach, and Brahms, Symphony No.1 - one of my favorite. The performance was really wonderful, the climax of the last movement brought tears to my eyes!

This was a really enjoyable, luxurious afternoon though I'm not sure if this was wise or not to take the trains to visit the hall in towncentre. In the trains and stations there were many people. And now the number of coronavirus patients is increasing day by day. First I have thought about doing some shopping after the concert but seeing the crowded shopping area I gave up the idea and come home directly x)
