Next Japan Tour starting in a few days!






After a Vienna Phil concert today in Livorno, Italy (Zubin Mehta, Beethoven 6 and 7) and Lohengrin tomorrow at Vienna State Opera I’m leaving to Japan on Wednesday.

My concert schedule includes the Mozart Concertos D and G with the Yamagata and Kyoto Symphony Orchestras as well as the Ibert Concerto with the Kyushu Symphony Orchestra.
In-between are very nice Recital with marvellous pianist Ryoko SAWAKI (photo) including music by Roussel, Fauré , Casella, Taffanel, Poulenc and the Sonatas by Franz Schubert (Arpeggione), Richard Strauss and César Franck in Gifu, Nagoya, Tokyo (Nikkei-Hall and Tokyo Bunka Kaikan) and Kagoshima.
I’m very much looking forward to meet many friends, perform in marvellous concert halls and enjoy the best food in the world!
