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.
