The Yomiuri ShimbunKazuki Yamada, a principal guest conductor of the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, will bring an interesting program elaborately put together with lesser-known gems to the orchestra’s concert on June 13.
The concert will start with Symphonic Fantasia No. 1 by Akira Ifukube, who is known for the theme music of the original “Godzilla” film, followed by Gliere’s Concerto for Coloratura Soprano. Soprano Albina Shagimuratova will be the soloist for this concerto, contributing a voice that is truly rare.
The main feature of the concert is Kalinnikov’s Symphony No. 1 with its film score atmosphere full of grand, easy-to-remember melodies.
