A composer once known as the “Beethoven of Japan” said on Friday that tests had shown he was not legally deaf and apologized to people throughout the country for lying by using a ghost writer for his popular symphonies and other music.
Mamoru Samuragochi, a classical musician who became known as an inspirational genius for composing music despite losing his hearing, bowed deeply before a packed news conference, his first public appearance since the scandal broke last month.
“I have caused a great deal of trouble with my lies for everyone, including those people who bought my CDs and came to my concerts,” Samuragochi, 50, said, his trademark flowing hair now trimmed in a typical businessman’s cut.
A statement distributed to reporters said hearing tests had shown that while Samuragochi’s hearing was impaired, it did not meet the requirements for legal deafness.
“I can hear sounds, but the sounds are twisted,” he said.

“There is totally no hope right now,” said Kambugu, still legally a man despite a sex change in the last year that is not recognized by Uganda, a nation that now has some of the toughest anti-gay laws on a continent where 37 states ban homosexuality.
She worries about her safety on the streets after the newspaper Red Pepper slapped her picture on its front page under the headline “How we became homos”.

“We can acknowledge that that’s not going to happen while Barack Obama’s president,” Karl told Cruz in an interview that aired on Sunday.
“I’ll give you one scenario where it could,” Cruz replied.
