The Waseda Symphony Orchestra Tokyo plays Strauss and Tchaikovsky

The outstanding orchestra of Tokyo’s Waseda University has long enjoyed a close relationship with the Berliner Philharmoniker. Its trademarks are amazing rhythmic precision and the Taiko drummers, who conclude every concert with a virtuoso drum piece. The main work on this programme demonstrates that the orchestra also has a passion for sumptuous, highly demanding scores: Richard Strauss’s Sinfonia domestica.
