This was recorded on 21st October, 2008 in the Hungarian State Opera House.

Conductor: Tomomi Nishimoto

Tchaikovsky: Romeo and Juliet -Fantasy Overture after Shakespeare
Tchaikovsky: Capriccio Italian, Op.45
Dvorak: Symphony No.9 in E-minor Op.95 "FROM THE NEW WORLD"
Brahms: Hungarian Dance No.1 in G minor

I think there are deep values in this DVD. You can enjoy so much beautiful and great-flamboyant Hungarian State Opera House, and maestro Nishimoto's spirited direction and the orchestra's glowing performance responding to it. Both image and audio are very high quality. Eight high-definition cameras worked. The atmosphere and feeling of tension of this concert are packed in this DVD as it is.

I listened this concert in the opera house, and see myself on this DVD as an audience! It is so wonderful memories for me.

"FROM THE NEW WORLD" is overwhelming, and I think "Romeo and Juliet" and "Hungarian Dance No.1" are brilliant. This orchestra's tone color blends well with flavor of "Hungarian Dance No.1".

Throughout the whole concert, I felt strong trusting relationship between the conductor and the orchestra members.

Scene of the rehearsal, interviews of maestro Nishimoto, and sightseeing of Hungary are included.

You can get this DVD through this site.

By the way, maestro Tomomi Nishimoto debuted in the US in March, 2009.

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…
