Festival: Suntory Hall Chamber Music Garden



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 legendary clarinettist Richard Stoltzman distinguished harpist Naoko Yoshino, up-coming young pianists Yu Kosuge and Haochen Zhang, 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 Quartet Excelsior, Hedenborg Trio and the Tokyo Sextet.
