Luca Pisaroni travels to Tokyo for his final engagement of the year as the bass soloist in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the NHK Symphony Orchestra. With its iconic “Ode to Joy” finale, this symphonic celebration will be led by Simone Young. Performances include December 21, 22, 23, & 25 at NHK Hall, and on December 26 at Suntory Hall.

Mr. Pisaroni shares the stage with a fantastic roster of colleagues, including soprano Maria Bengtsson, mezzo-soprano Kasumi Shimizu, and tenor Nikolai Schukoff. Luca performed this grand work with the prestigious Gewandhausorchester last holiday season and has previously been lauded by Bachtrack for his “sublime” “well-focused, strong and well-articulated”  bass solo with the esteemed Vienna Philharmonic.
