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!

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.
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_King%27s_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 (http://www.imbc.com/broad/tv/drama/horsedoctor/).
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.

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…

Mr. Cho Seung-Woo's Audio Book "The Stars"

I have been able to have this audio book through an auction, and I listen this every night recently.
I can not understand the Korean language, but Mr. Cho Seung-Woo's very soft voice bring relief for me very much. So I can relax and sleep very well. It is very good for my health.

I was able to read the Japanese translation of this story, and describe the scenes in my mind. I think Mr. Cho Seung-Woo is very fit for the main character of this story...


His pictures on the poster and post cards enclosed are very young and so much pretty!

Also, the background music bring relief for me along the reading.

Here is a motion picture of his promotion for this audio book.
