Attached, is a small profile of Kosaku Yamada (1886 - 1965) published shortly after his New York debut in 1919. Classicly trained in Europe, "Yamada organized the first symphonic orchestra of native players to perform the music of Occidental composers under a Japanese conductor", which later became the Tokyo Philharmonic Orchestra. This article outlines some of his various accomplisments up to 1919, while deleting others. Prior to his two year sojurn in the United States, he had composed three Japanese operas: "Reisho" (1909), "Ochitaru Tennyo" (1913) and "Shichinin No Oujo" (1916).
