(*At first, the maestro Tomomi's official blog has been opened on 31st December, 2009. It has automatic translation services at the bottom. I think it is helpful for you.)
This concert was matinee, and I felt the atomosphere was more friendly and sociable than the previous night (http://iceskate-iceskate.blogspot.com/2009/11/tomomi-nishimoto-mahler-symphony-no5_30.html).
Maestro Tomomi and Royal Philharmonic Orchestra had performed for consecutive three days, but they showed no fatigue for us.
Mozart: Piano Concerto No.20 K.466 performed by Mr Freddy Kempf was much better than one two days ago (http://iceskate-iceskate.blogspot.com/2009/11/tomomi-nishimoto-mahler-symphony-no5.html). I think he was relaxed much and could prove himself this day.
This piece is simple, so I think it might be difficult for professional pianists to perform for audiences.
However, I think his encore was better than this tune, also this day.
Regarding Beethoven's Seventh Symphony, I felt it is gracious. This piece's impression seems to be different much depends on orchestras.
I think Royal Philharmonic Orchestra is very fit for the music such as Adagietto of Mahler Symphony No.5 and "Tristan and Isolde" Prelude and Isolde's Love Death.
I would like to listen Mahler Symphony No.5 and "Tristan and Isolde" Prelude and Isolde's Love Death performed by these musicians three more times at least!!
By the way, the shop in Suntory Hall is a magic space for me... There are many fantastic musical accessories, and I always buy some, but this day, I did NOT buy ANYTHING for a change! However, I bought a necklace at a jewelery store in the ANA Hotel next to Suntory Hall... So, in the end, my wallet had been aerial!
