Nikolai Lugansky returns to NHK Symphony Orchestra
Nikolai Lugansky returns to the NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo to perform Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Its Music Director Emeritus Charles Dutoit conducts the two concerts on 14 & 15 December, which also feature Bartók’s Concerto for Orchestra and Hindemith’s Symphonic Metamorphosis on Themes by Weber. The NHK Symphony is the first of several world-class orchestras with whom the pair collaborates this season: they will also perform with The Philadelphia Orchestra in February 2012, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich in April 2012.
