【Notice of Conductor change and Orchestra Programs Announcement】Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks

Conductor Mariss Jansons was scheduled to come to Japan for concerts in November. However, due to health reasons, he must regretfully withdraw from all concerts of the November Asian tour of the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks, including the concerts in Japan. In place of Maestro Jansons, Maestro Zubin Mehta will conduct the concerts on the Asian tour.
Zubin Mehta is one of the greatest maestros of our era. He has conducted the world’s most distinguished orchestras, including the Vienna Philharmonic, Berlin Philharmonic, and Israel Philharmonic, of which he is Music Director. Since 1962 he has collaborated frequently with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and built a close relationship of trust with the orchestra.

To the many people who have been looking forward to concerts conducted by Maestro Jansons, we would like to express our sincere regret. We will be grateful for your understanding.

As a result of these circumstances, the program of the concert on Thursday, November 22, will change as shown below. Normally, Japan Arts does not offer refunds in the case of changes in performing artists or programs. However, for the concert on November 22, we will provide a refund to those who request one, due to the exceptionally large change from the originally announced program.
