Carnegie Hall today announced that Seiji Ozawa will conduct works
featured on the second half of programs performed by the Saito Kinen
Orchestra on December
14 and December
15. Maestro Ozawa will conduct Brahms's Symphony No. 1 on December
14 and Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique on December 15.
As Maestro Ozawa continues to recover from a sciatic condition,
conductor Tatsuya Shimono has graciously agreed to step in, leading
works featured on the first half of these programs, including music by
Atsuhiko Gondai, Beethoven, and Tōru Takemitsu. Maestro Ozawa will also
conduct the Orchestra's third and final program of Britten's War
Requiem on Saturday, December 18 as previously announced.
Carnegie Hall and Maestro Ozawa are grateful that Tatsuya Shimono has
agreed to lead the first half of the December 14 and 15 programs.
Maestro Shimono, a young conductor championed by Maestro Ozawa and
currently the resident conductor of Tokyo's Yomiuri Nippon Symphony
Orchestra, also stepped in for Maestro Ozawa for programs at the Saito
Kinen Festival Matsumoto in September.
