Suntory Hall with Maria João Pires

Tokyo 2014

As part of our 40th Anniversary celebrations, the SCO embarked on an extensive tour of the Far East, with concerts in Korea, Japan, and two performances at the Hong Kong Arts Festival. Soloist Maria João Pires performed Chopin's Piano Concerto No 2 and Schumann's Piano Concerto, with conductor Robin Ticciati leading the orchestra in Schumann's Symphony No 2, Beethoven's Symphony No 5, Mendelssohn's The Hebrides and more. 

"Last month my wife Alison and I had the privilege and pleasure of joining the SCO on their tour of the Far East – taking in Japan, Hong Kong and, after we left them, South Korea. It was a great opportunity to get to know the orchestra, to get to know the music and to realise how the SCO is appreciated internationally."
