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.
