ARTS & LEISURE

Daisuke Soga at the helm of National Radio Orchestra

The National Radio Orchestra presents tonight, at 7 pm, at the Radio Broadcasting Hall, a romantic concert under the baton of Japanese conductor Daisuke Soga. The programme includes Les Préludes, G. 97, by F. Liszt, the Concerto in D major for violin and orchestra, op. 77, by J. Brahms – soloist: Cristina Anghelescu – and the Symphony in d minor, by C. Franck. Born in Osaka, Daisuke Suga studied piano, clarinet and contrabass at the Toho– Gukuen Academy, and went on to attend master classes at the Bucharest University of Music, under the guidance of professor Ion Cheptea. Drawn by the magic of conducting, in 1989, he started studying the art at the Hochschule für Musik in Vienna, with the professor Uros Lajovic.


He further honed his conducting technique attending the seminars of the Chigiana Academy in Sienna and the Bartok Inter­national Seminar in Szombathely, where he had a chance to study with prestigious conductors, such as Bernard Haitink, Ferdinand Leitner and Leon Fleischer.


He made his debut as a conductor in 1989, in Romania, which was to be followed by concerts in Europe, Japan, China, Brazil, Singapore, Malaysia and the US. Between 2000 and 2003, he acted as the musical director and conductor of the Osaka Symphonic Or­chestra, and went on to become the Chief Conductor of the Tokyo New City Orchestra. Dynamic, using precise gestures, exigent, with a rare sense of musical architecture, the artist became actively involved in the Romanian musical life, as well. Thus, besides concerts with the Bucharest Philharmonic and the National Radio Orchestra, Daisuke Suga conducted most of the Romanian orchestras. His presence, in 2011, at the “George Enescu” International Festival, conducting the music that accompanied the finale and the gala concert of the “George Enescu” Interna­tional Competition’s laureates, met with extraordinary success.
