August 2010 - Symphony No. 8 / Takashi Asahina / Nagoya University Orchestra
We conclude our survey of Japanese recordings from the LP era with the third in a series of recordings by the Nagoya University Orchestra. The orchestra pressed LPs of their performances and some, conducted by well known conductors have become big collectors items. My thanks to a collector in Sapporo for making this available. This month features a performance of the Bruckner Symphony No. 8 conducted by Takashi Asahina. The performance was given on January 20, 1976 in Nagoya Citizen Hall.
