Martin Sieghart off to Tokyo for an unexpected trip

Thanks to his extensive experience of the symphonic repertoire and his deep knowledge of Japan's orchestras, Martin Sieghart has been sent in September 2017 on a rescue mission with the New Japan Philharmonic Orchestra and conducts two concerts in Tokyo's Sumida Triphony Hall, thus reinforcing his presence in Japan and his love of its culture which has never faltered with time. The programme includes Schumann's Die Braut von Messina, Mendelssohn's Violin Concerto in E minor, Debussy's Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune, Scriabin's Le Poème de l'extase

This unexpected engagement follows another concert, performed in July 2017 with NHK Symphony Orchestra in Tokyo's Bunkamura Orchard Hall, with Elgar's Cello concerto in E minor and Brahms' Symphony no.1 in C minor.
