Leila Josefowicz performs Japanese premiere of Scheherazade.2

13 April 2017

Leila Josefowicz performs the Japanese premiere of John Adams’ Scheherazade.2 with the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra on 17 and 18 April.

Conducting these performances is Alan Gilbert, who led the world premiere with Josefowicz and the New York Philharmonic in March 2015. The Boston Symphony Orchestra recently announced its 2017/18 season which will see Josefowicz and Gilbert collaborate again for performances of Scheherazade.2 in March 2018.

These concerts mark Josefowicz’s return to Tokyo following her last appearance in September 2015, when she performed Oliver Knussen’s Violin Concerto with the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra conducted by the composer.
