To promote the release of its CD album, the official website for the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon franchise's 25th anniversary project has posted a four-minute digest video from "Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon Classic Concert" held at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre on August 2 and 3.
The first classic concert featuring the theme songs and soundtrack music from the Pretty Guardian Sailor Moon anime series was performed by Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra, the oldest classical orchestra in Japan founded in 1911, and 29-year-old clarinettist Makoto Yoshida served as conductor. While Akiko Kosaka (Sailor Moon musical music director) and Yoko Ishida (Sailor Moon R ED song "Otome no Policy") joined the concert as guest artists, Kotono Mitsuishi, the voice Usagi Tsukino/Sailor Moon in all anime series, also played the narrator.
The two disc album including 21 tunes performed at the concerts, from "Moonlight Densetsu" (TV anime
first two seasons' OP theme) to "Sailor Star Song" (TV anime 5th season Sailor Stars OP theme), is
scheduled to be released on December 6.
