This recording contains the encores Frederick Fennell performed, with his beloved Tokyo Kosei Wind Orchestra. This CD was released posthumously, after the passing on of Frederick Fennell, who had been Principal Conductor of the world-class orchestra since January 1984, a position he served (later as Conductor Laureate in 1996) with distinction until his death in December 7, 2004. He was ninety years old.
Notes on recording:
At the beginning of tracks 2,7,8,13,14,15 and 16 conductor Fennell can be heard speaking in what he playfully described as "Maestro's Japanese" to tell the Japanese audience the title or give them a quick description of the encore they were about to hear.
Some minor background noise may be audible on this disc because the original masters were live and analogue recordings.
