Tomomi Nishimoto with George Enescu Philharmonic of Bucharest

May 30, 2009
Yokohama Minato Mirai Hall, Main Hall

Conductor: Tomomi Nishimoto
George Enescu Philharmonic of Bucharest

Bela Bartok: Rumanian Folk Dances, S.76
Sergei Prokofiev: Symphony No.1 in D major, Classical, Op.25
Johannes Brahms: Symphony No.1 in C minor, Op.68
Encore Johannes Brahms: Hungarian Dances No.5

All pieces were very interesting for me. Especially, hearing "Rumanian Folk Dances" at concerts in Japan is rare.

Internationally acclaimed maestro, Tomomi Nishimoto conducted prestige of Eastern Europe filled with tradition and innovation, George Enescu Philharmonic of Bucharest.
The orchestra sound was very velvety and kind, so I felt the characteristic is excellent with maestro Tomomi. I would like to hear many beautiful melody tunes in this combination. Almost players are elderly. The leader's solo was also fascinating.

Tomomi looked just fine, and conducted smarter than before, I feel.

I heared "Sergei Prokofiev: Symphony No.1 in D major, Classical" conducted by Tomomi at Bruckner Orchestra Linz regular concert ( before. This piece had not been so impressive there, but it was riveting this time!

I think Brahms's pieces suit Tomomi very much. This Brahms was illimitably kind and vast..... It was so mesmeric. I wanted to give this performance a standing ovation, but I was not courageous enough, so I gave it big applause instead.....

When Tomomi took the podium for an encore, the applause became bigger.
The encore; Hungarian Dances No.5 by Brahms was also fine, needless to say.
All tunes were performed enthusiastically and memorable.

Before this concert, I had felt tired under very busy work and other personal matters. However, I could refresh in spirit and become so fine owing to those wonderful music. I am so satisfied.
I can have this feeling from almost Tomomi's concerts, I think.

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…
