The NHK Symphony Orchestra performs about 120 concerts across Japan annually including 54 subscription concerts which are broadcast nationwide on NHK television and NHK FM radio, and some of which are introduced to the world’s audience through international broadcast services. In August 2013, it made its first appearance at the Salzburg Festival, and in the spring of 2020, presented concerts in nine major European cities including Berlin and Vienna, earning high artistic acclaim for its performances and activities.
It will invite Fabio Luisi as its Chief Conductor from September 2022.
Music can lift people’s spirits and give them a moment of consolation. The NHK Symphony Orchestra hopes to contribute to society by presenting high quality music not only at concert halls but also at many other venues.
