About

The Conductors series is continued with Japan’s most distinguished conductor: Seiji Ozawa.

A luxury edition for collectors with extraordinary packaging: an elegant deluxe hardcover book.

Seiji Ozawa is not only Japan’s best-known conductor but also the founder of the Saito Kinen Festival in Matsumoto, which in 2015 was renamed the Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival.

“To reunite with this musicians every year in Matsumoto and create outstanding music is very precious to me. It is a great pleasure for me to share this music, which could only be created here in Matsumoto, with many people.” – Seiji Ozawa

Special feature included in this edition: on the occasion of Maestro Ozawa’s 80th birthday, Martha Argerich and Matthias Goerne among others joined the orchestra to perform Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy, op.80, plus a rendition of ‘Happy Birthday’ – a deeply emotional moment!

Including the first ever recorded concert in Europe from 1989 with Maestro Ozawa and Kazuyoshi Akiyama conducting the Saito Kinen Orchestra at the Alter Oper Frankfurt.

The 2003 Waldbühne concert of the Berliner Philharmoniker was dedicated to George Gershwin. Supported by the Marcus Roberts Trio, conductor Seiji Ozawa presented An American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue and the Concerto in F, turning the Waldbühne into a vast, swinging jazz club.

The collaboration between Maestro Ozawa and violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, with the members of the Berlin Philharmonic gave a very refreshing and energetic, lively and beautiful performance of the Beethoven Violin Concerto – a fitting tribute to the late Maestro von Karajan.

“Ozawa has energy, fire, excitement, and if I dare bring up this controversial category: glamour.” – Michael Steinberg, The Boston Globe
