Wagner: "Tristan and Isolde" Prelude and Isolde's Love Death
Mahler: Symphony No.5

"Wagner: Tristan and Isolde Prelude and Isolde's Love Death" performed by Royal Philharmonic Orchestra was super-duper. Strings colors of RPO are very beautiful, and it is so effective for this tune. Also, I think this piece suits maestro Tomomi Nishimoto well.

Regarding "Mahler: Symphony No.5", it is a varied and big tune indeed. I was tired after listenning this piece in two consecutive nights, so I imagine performers were much more tired.......
It was a really "Bravo!!!" performance in this day, too. Even after lights for audience seats are on, hurricane of applause did not die down, and the number of audiences who gave performers their standing ovation continue…

Mahler: Symphony No.5

This was one of the Japan concert tour of maestro Nishimoto and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO). There were three types of programs.

It was my first time to listen a live performance of RPO. I like their strings tune colour very much. It is brilliant. Especially, I like the violoncello's colour most.

I could enjoy the good performance of "the Abduction from the Seraglio Overture". I want to have this performance's CD.

I felt "Mozart: Piano Concerto No.20 K.466" was not so fine. I think Mr Kempf strained too much this day. "Chopin: Nocturne No.27-2" …
