Tadashi Mori, the Musical Director of the Nagoya Philharmonic at the time of making this recording, was previously Chief Conductor of the Tokyo Municipal Orchestra, the Kyoto Symphony Orchestra and the Fujiwara and Niki-Kai opera companies. He taught at the famous Toho School of Music in Tokyo, an institution that has produced conductors such as Seiji Ozawa, Kazuyoshi Akiyama and Hiroyuki Iwaki. Mori held the position of Music Director and Permanent Conductor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra from 1967 to 1972, and Permanent Conductor of the NHK Symphony Orchestra from 1979 to 1987 before he passed away.
