It has been two years that the BRSO has toured through Asia with concerts in South-Korea, Japan and Taiwan. This year they will be coming back! In November and December 2016 the orchestra and Mariss Jansons will travel to Asia again, for ten concerts in Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. The orchestra is looking forward to meeting his fans from Asia again.

The concerts, featuring symphonies by Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss, as well as Ludwig van Beethoven’s violin concerto with renowned soloist Gil Shaham, are scheduled in the best concert halls of Tokio, Taipei and Seoul.

#3 Asia 2016: About a snare drum

Guido Marggrander, percussionist of the Symphonieorchester, has an important date on our tour (besides rehearsals and concerts): at the “Yamaha Headquarters” in Hamamatsu. Together with Yamaha engineers, he develops a snare drum according to his needs. We have accompanied him.

#2 Asia 2016: The “Off-Stage Orchestra”

They just play 22 bars together, but these need to be perfect. Richard Strauss’ “Alpine Symphony” demands a “Fernorchester” (off-stage orchestra). To play this Symphony in Asia, we are dependent on local support. In Japan the musicians come from the NHK Symphony Orchestra.
