Boston Symphony Orchestra tours to China and Japan
The Boston Symphony Orchestra continues its long tradition of ground-breaking tours, returning to China for the first time since it became the first American orchestra to tour to mainland China in 1979.
The orchestra gives concerts in Beijing on 1 & 2 May, Shanghai on 4 May and Guangzhou on 6 May, then travels to Japan for three concerts in Tokyo.
Behzod Abduraimov is soloist in Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini for the concerts in China, and Janine Jansen performs Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with the orchestra in Japan. Dutoit conducts Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.5 across the tour.
