    RECENTLY The Tokyo Sinfonia’s most recent evening at the Foreign Corresopondents’ Club of Japan, an Italian Serenade, was enthusiastically enjoyed by an ever enlarging audience at the dining tables.

The first thing the audience discovered, in fact, was the first-course appetiser, described on the programme page as Coctel de Mariscos Ceviche. It won wildly enthusiastic plaudits from everyone.
