Jun Märkl makes his debut with the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra

Jun Märkl conducts the Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra for the first time on 10 January at Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, with a programme of Wagner and Tchaikovsky. This is followed by a second performance on 16 January at Suntory Hall with Webern’s Passacaglia and Schoenberg’s arrangement of Brahms’ D minor Piano Quartet, a piece he has recorded with the MDR Sinfonieorchester.

He repeats the Berlioz a week later with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, coupled with Hosokawa’s Blossoming II and music by Bartók. Then he continues to Atlanta Symphony for Messiaen, Poulenc and Saint-Saëns.
