Jun Maerkl conducts in Brussels and returns to Cardiff

Maerkl conducts Messaien’s Turangalila on 7 December at Bozar Brussels, with the Brussels Philharmonic Orchestra. After his first encounter with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales at last Summer’s Cardiff Singer of the World competition, Maerkl was invited back at the first available opportunity for a symphonic programme with the orchestra – works by Debussy, Ibert, Mozart and Toshio Hosokawa in Hoddinott Hall on 20 December.
