After the announcement of the concert, we received many expectations
from the brass players at the university. We will show you some of them.
...I want you to feel the pressure of the sound which can not be felt
through CDs. I’ve heard Mr.Tsujimoto’s trumpet and Mr.Tsugita’s Tuba. Mr.
Tsujimoto's sweet sounds, Mr.Tsugita’s marvelous sound- “Can he do all
such things with Tuba?”. You should experience them directly. (N.T.
College of Comparative Culture, University of Tsukuba)
...Because he had played in the United States, Mr.Yoon is also good at
bluesy solo, and on the other hand he plays folk songs etc. very nice.
Please listen to the recordings of Amazing Grace and Arirang on his own
official website. (Toshihito Waki, Associate Professor, University of
...I think Mr.Nippashi is a young horn player with rich tone and versatile
expressions. He plays not only in the orchestra but also as a soloist
actively. ...Alexander’s traditional sounds loved around the world,
including the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. Mr.Nippashi seems to be the
leading player who inherits it in Japan. (T.O. College of International
Studies, University of Tsukuba)
...The first CD I got after I entered the brass band in junior high school
and began to play the trombone was "COLORS" by Mr. Akira Kuwata. His
soft and smooth sound taught what Trombone is, to me, who was still
beginner at that time. (Tsubasa Takeda, College of Comparative Culture,
University of Tsukuba)
...When I first heard Mr. Tsugita's melodious sound, I could hardly believe
my ears. "Is the instrument he plays really tuba?" He manipulates tuba
freely, from the treble high tone to the deep bass resonating with belly.
This is a very good chance to listen one of the best, no, truly the
best tuba in Japan (and free of charge!). (Tomohisa Tabata, College of
Comparative Culture, University of Tsukuba)
