Seiji Ozawa came to visit the Berlin Phil in Tokyo.

We were particularly pleased to see this VIP visitor: Our old friend Seiji Ozawa listens backstage to our performance of Boulez’ Notations in Tokyo. Also on the programme: Bruckner’s Seventh Symphony.

Über diesen Stargast haben wir uns besonders gefreut: Unser alter Freund Seiji Ozawa hört sich backstage unsere Aufführung von Boulez’ Notations in Tokio an. Ebenfalls auf dem Programm: Bruckners Siebte Symphonie.

We hear he also came backstage at Suntory Hall to see the Wiener Philharmoniker, Singverein and Christian Thielemann the previous night, after Beethoven’s 9th.


  • WOW!! That’s what I mean for “a great surprise”!!
