      • Well said. I’ve just seen a tweet by pianist Stephen Hough who is on his way – once again – from Singapore to Korea for recitals and concerts.

        • And I have a wonderful memory of the Sapporo symphony orchestra playing Sibelius 5, 6 and 7 in Suntory hall, Tokyo conducted by Tadaaki Otaka (The printed programme proudly stated Mr Otaka OBE.)
