Tomomi Nishimoto; Mahler Symphony No.5 with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra ("C" Program)

September 22, 2009
Suntory Hall

Conductor: Tomomi Nishimoto
Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Piano: Freddy Kempf

Mozart: The Abduction from the Seraglio (Die Entfuhrung aus dem Serail) Overture
Mozart: Piano Concerto No.20 K.466
(Piano Encore) Chopin: Nocturne No.27-2
Beethoven: Seventh Symphony

(*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 (

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 ( 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!

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…
