Bruckner Orchestra Linz regular concert

April 18, 2007
Brucknerhaus, Linz (Austria)

Conductor: Tomomi Nishimoto
Piano: Benedetto Lupo

1. Prokofiev: Classical Symphony
2. Ravel: Piano Concerto in D major
3. Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.5

This concert was determined by the success of Praha Promos 2005 Japanese Night (

It was the second time to visit Linz for me, and I felt people there are very unassuming and kind. So, sightseeing there, including the church that Mr. Josef Anton Bruckner had been played an organ and Lentos Kunstmuseum Linz, were so much enjoyable.

Brucknerhaus stands along the Danube which the water surface was very shining reflecting the setting sun. The atmosphere around it was so peaceful and I like it very much.

The audience of this concert were almost the local elderly dressed up, and I felt the atmosphere of the lobby with drinks and the concert hall were wonderful and traditional.

Regarding the performances, "Tchaikovsky: Symphony No.5" was especially interesting. I had listened this piece by Russian and Japanese orchestras, but in this concert performed by an Austrian orchestra, this tune was significantly different impression, maybe because of the tone color. The rendition was so impassioned. The audience bursted into ringing enthusiastic applause.

I read one of books written by Mr. Kenichirou Kobayashi, who is a Japanese conductor, and it says that it is difficult to be given cheering and clapping at Brucknerhaus. However, in this concert, performers were certainly given big cheers and applause!

The articles for this concert were published in some Austrian newspapers dated on April 20, 2007.

Sparkling Singing Voice of South Korean Actor; Mr. CHO SEUNG WOO

Mr. CHO SEUNG WOO's profile.

I knew him through a South Korean TV drama; Horse Doctor.
It had been broadcasted by the Japanese state-run broadcast (NHK) for one year from July 2013 to 2014.
(This drama is planned to be broadcasted by NHK again from the end of September 2014.)
*We can see various scenes through the MBC homepage (
I looked forward to seeing this drama every Sunday very much, and became a fan of him; Mr. CHO SEUNG WOO.
So, I browsed his information on the Web and found the following his fantastic voices.

I saw some movies he acted ever too, and I think he is an excellent actor, but we may not be able to enjoy all his talents by only his acting without singing......

The following voices are current my most favorites, though I can not understand the lyrics.

[CD] "Scheherazade" Tomomi Nishimoto conducting the Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra

RIMSKY-KORSAKOV: Scheherazade, Op.35
LISZT: Les Preludes
LISZT: Der Tanz in Dorfschenke, "Mephisto Waltz No.1"

Conductor: Tomomi Nishimoto
The Budapest Philharmonic Orchestra

Regarding "Scheherazade", I would like to hear "live" this performance so much. It is very much lyric and I can feel various wonderful colours hearing this piece. (We can see such colours hearing music conducted by maestro Tomomi almost always.) I think it is very high quality and beautiful performance.

It is very hot in Tokyo now, but while I hear this music in this CD, it brings to my mind scenes at sea and I can feel coolness.....

I like the theme of "Scheherazade" played by the leader so much. It is very elegant indeed.

Actually, I did not like this tune so much before, but after I heard this CD, I am very interested in it now.

I also like "Les Preludes" in this CD so much. It is very impressive. This tun…

CD: South Korean Muisical: HEDWIG New Make-up (Mr. Cho Seung-Woo Version)

I am very happy to have this CD, because this seems to be live recording, so I can imagine actual stages well!
There are two CDs. In the second CD, several pieces from the first CD were recorded in different arrangements and rhythms, so we can happily taste two types of one song.

I have the CD of 2013 version, too.
(Here is a motion picture at recording.)
I think singing of Mr. Cho Seung-Woo has become better and been more polished than the 2013 version CD.
Further, this version is live recording! His live singing seems to be so good!!
Also, Mr. Cho Seung-Woo's rock singing is very rhythmical and beautiful, not just noisy, so we can listen them very comfortably.

Same as the 2013 version CD, I like "Wig in a Box" best in this CD. It is very beautiful piece!
I think I will become fond of all HEDWIG musical songs through these CDs.

Pictures of the jacket inform me of the scenes of stages.
Here is a motion picture which shows his new make-up and styles.

Recently I am ver…
