Paavo Järvi undertakes Extensive tour of Asia with the Orchestre de Paris

Following their hugely successful tour of Japan in 2011, Paavo Järvi and the Orchestre de Paris perform a total of 7 concerts in Japan in November - including 4 and 5 November in Tokyo (in Bunka Kaikan and Suntory Hall respectively) plus Kyoto (2 November), Hyogo (3 November), Yokohama (7 November) and Fukui (8 November). The tour ends in Okayama on 9 November. The concerts feature works by Debussy, Ravel, Prokofiev and Sibelius with Jean-Frederic Neuberger performing Ravel and Liszt Piano Concertos, and Thierry Escaich as organ soloist in Saint-Saëns’ Symphony No.3, which they performed together in a hugely successful sold-out televised concert at the 2013 BBC Proms.
Before reaching Japan, the tour opens in Vietnam, with concerts at Hanoi’s Opera House on 29 October and in Saigon Opera House, Ho Chi Minh City, on 30 October.
The trip is the first of two extensive tours of the region for Järvi in the coming weeks. In late November and early December he brings The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen to Yokohama for semi-staged performances of Fidelio (repeating their performances at this year’s Beethoven Bonn Festival) as well as concerts throughout Japan and Korea.
