Yu Kosuge, Nodoka Okisawa and the Karajan Academy

Nodoka Okisawa is a young conductor at the beginning of an international career, assistant to Kirill Petrenko and scholarship holder at the Karajan Academy. In this concert she presents Francis Poulenc’s Sinfonietta and Richard Strauss’ suite Le bourgeois gentilhomme, two works full of charm and wit. Like Nodoka Okisawa, the evening’s soloist is also from Japan: Yu Kosuge, who made her debut with the Tokyo New City Orchestra at the age of nine, performs Dai Fujikura’s piano concerto Impulse, in which piano and orchestra – according to the composer – unite to form a single, living organism.
