HarrisonParrott touring takes the Autumn by storm bringing both orchestras and theatre to Europe and Asia
In September we kick off the start of the season with the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra who embark on a special tour to Tokyo, Japan with chief conductor Sakari Oramo. This special tour commemorates 150 years of diplomatic relations between Sweden and Japan, and these links are highlighted in the diverse programme and soloists presented including Japanese pianist Nobu and Swedish soprano Camilla Tilling.
At the same time we enter the theatrical world, by taking Opéra de Chambre de Genève to Macao’s Music Festival for a special invitational performance of Rossini’s Il Signor Bruschino, in celebration of Rossini’s 150 year anniversary.
Hopping back to Europe, we take Les Siècles and François-Xavier Roth to Italy’s Modena and Udine with a romantic and jazzy programme of works from Franck, Saint-Saëns and Ravel.
But we cannot leave Asia alone for long, and we head back to Japan with Canadian Brass for five concerts across the country.
At the same time we take Tonhalle- Orchestra Zürich and their new conductor Paavo Järvi on a seven date concert tour of China, Taiwan and South Korea . Encompassing some of the most prestigious venues in Asia, the Orchestra is joined by pianists Khatia Buniatshvili and Zee Zee performing Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No.2 and Liszt’s Piano Concerto No.1 respectively.
