In Asia with Simon Rattle, Yuja Wang and Seong-Jin Cho
For the last time in the Rattle era, the Berliner Philharmoniker are travelling to Asia. This tour also marks the 60th anniversary of the orchestra’s first concert in Japan. The soloists include the pianists Yuja Wang and Seong-Jin Cho.
Recordings of the tour programme, which the musicians presented in advance in the Philharmonie, can be found in the Digital Concert Hall.
"Tuba on tour" is a photo project by Monika Rittershaus featuring this often neglected instrument. Starring our principal tuba player Alexander von Puttkamer and his instruments there will be one new picture every day on this blog during our Asia tour.
