Japan Virtuoso Symphony Orchestra gave its first public performance in September 1991. It was born from the idea of bringing outstanding conductors and principal instrumentalists from throughout Japan into a new orchestra, one that would signal Japan’s full assimilation of Western music nearly 150 years after its introduction.
Since its formal concert debut at Bunkamura Orchard Hall in Tokyo in September 1992, the JVSO has performed annual concerts in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya and Nishinomiya.
The JVSO’s masterful interpretation of important works in the Western canon makes it widely known in Japan, and destines the orchestra to be an important cultural representative abroad.
Orchestra founder & producer: Shigeaki Saegusa, composer & Naoto Otomo, conductor.
