• Conductor Update for Saito Kinen Orchestra Concerts at Carnegie Hall

    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.

    If you have any further questions regarding these changes, please call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800 or visit the Carnegie Hall Box Office. We apologize for any inconvenience this change may cause you and appreciate your patience.
