Jun Märkl conducts a new production of Idomeneo at Tokyo’s Nikikai Opera opening on 12 September and with further performances on 13,14 and 15 September at Toyko’s New National Theatre. The production is directed by Damiano Michieletto in a co-production Theater an der Wien, and features an all-Japanese cast with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra in the pit.

Märkl return to Nikikai Opera next season for a new Strauss production. His next visit to Tokyo will be in January 2015 for his first appearance with Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra, in concerts at Suntory Hall and Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre.

September also sees the release on Naxos of Märkl’s Toshio Hosokawa Orchestral Works Vol.II with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Read the reviews of Vol.I, released earlier in 2014:

Guardian, April 2014

“Stunningly recorded, the Scottish players respond with alacrity to the ever-scrupulous Märkl…”
