Jun Märkl returns to Asia this month for concerts with Hong Kong Philharmonic, Osaka Philharmonic and Kunitachi College of Music, where he holds the position of Invited Professor.
Märkl will lead two concerts with the HKPO on 25 and 26 June with a program of Schubert, Beethoven and Brahms, alongside nine-year-old soloist Johnson Li, before travelling to Japan to conduct Saint-Saëns and Beethoven with Osaka Philharmonic on 6 July, finishing his tour of the Far East in Kunitachi for a concert of Strauss, Liszt and Berlioz on 14 July at the esteemed music school.
This period follows two performances of Strauss Der Rosenkavalier with Hungarian State Opera, which were critically praised:
“an inspired and very precise interpretation. The musicians show off their talents admirably, encouraged by the attentive conducting, with an exceptional level of detail… superb.”
