It was exciting going back to Japan, this time to collaborate with selected young talented players in Nagoya. Together we performed Bach’s Brandenburg concerto no.5 and the Double Violin concerto under my direction and help of my talented colleagues, flautist Boris Bizjak, harpsichordist Masumi Yamamoto and violinist Yuka Matsumoto. The concert took place at the Atsuta Hall in Nagoya on 14th October. The next stop was Yokohama, where I performed in the beautiful Minato Mirai Hall in a recital with pianist Yoko Misumi on 18th October. Also here, Bach was again present. Next to sonatas by Grieg, and Beethoven, and
Stravinsky’s Italian Suite, I performed Bach’s Solo Violin Partita no.2.
