Festival: Suntory Hall Chamber Music Garden

Biography

June 2nd - 17th, 2018

Suntory Hall launched its flagship festival “Chamber Music Garden” in 2011, so that more people can access chamber music in a casual and intimate setting and at affordable prices. Seven years since, it has become one of the largest chamber music festivals in Japan. Usually, the festival is held in early summer.

The festival has assembled a stellar line-up of chamber musicians from both home and abroad, including Küchl Quartett’s Brahms Zyklus, Kyoko Takezawa’s 30th anniversary concert, up-coming young pianists from South Korea focusing on Asia, former members of the Tokyo Quartet, Koichiro Harada, Kikuei Ikeda (violin) and Kazuhide Isomura (viola) and, of course, eminent cellist and Suntory Hall President Tsuyoshi Tsutsumi, as well as ensembles such as Cuarteto Casals for the complete Beethoven Cycle and Trio Wanderer.
