4TH DOCTORATE CONCERT

Final Exam

 

Tokyo University of the Arts
 

Enchanted by the ballads of Karl Loewe

 

This year's program of my final examination consists exclusively of ballads by Karl Loewe, including the centerpiece of my dissertation, the ballad cycle "Kaiser Karl V.", op. 99,
the legendary ballad "Gregor auf dem stein", op. 38, and the imperial ballad "Kaiser Otto's Christmas Party", op. 121

 

These works are not performed in Japan or Germany, and we are confident that they will add a new dimension to Loewe's appeal.

"EGMONT"

Christian Jost | MACHIAVELL

23.04.2022 DEUTSCHLANDPREMIERE
Further dates: 20.04.22 | 12.05.22 | 27.05.22 | 29.05.22 | 15.06.22 | 25.06.22

I am looking forward to playing the role of Machiavell in a production by Nadja Loschky . . .

 

Ludwig van Beethoven wrote his famous incidental music for Goethe's tragedy Egmont in 1810, and this in turn prompted the Theater an der Wien to commission Christian Jost to compose for the Beethoven Year: Egmont as an opera with musical reference to Beethoven.

"Yoshiaki Kimura as Machiavell descends into

the depths of human existence with abysmal bass!"

愛と平和

"LOVE AND PEACE"

01.08.2021 Tokyo | HAKUJU HALL

I am pleased that we will give a concert on the topic of "Love and Peace" this year.

As a world premiere, aspiring composers Asuka Yanai, Ayako Nada and Natsuko Nakamura composed Japanese songs for me.

 

In collaboration with students from the Gift Kids Academy, it will be one of the highlights of this year's concert.

"FAUST" GOUNOD MÉPHISTOPHÉLÈS
29.02.2020 PREMIERE

I am delighted to play the role of Méphistophélès in Gounod's FAUST for the first time, in a production by my compatriot Tomo Sugao...

 

"Yoshiaki Kimura is the absolute ruler of the play, omnipresent....
...Through his physical presence and vocal power, he commands the stage from the beginning to the bitter end."

02.03.2020 Westfahlen-Blatt

""The role was made for Yoshiaki Kimura. Comedic talent, singing aplomb, mimic virtuosity, gestural persuasiveness, all made him the showmaster of a world on a slippery slope."
