The Conductor Series featuring Takashi Asahina conducting the Major Symphonies of Japan! Part of the Takashi Asahina XRCD Legend Edition Collection!
Takashi Asahina conducts the New Japan Philharmonic for this performance of Bruckner's Ninth Symphony recorded in June 1980 at St. Mary's Cathedral in Tokyo. For some, Takashi Asahina was "the Karajan of Japan;" for others, his eminence was derived at least in part from his being the oldest conductor on the international scene; for others yet, he was quite simply an excellent musician, with a special sympathy for the classics of the Austro-German repertoire.
