This collaboration celebrates the Academy’s friendship with Japan and, in particular, its close links with Tokyo University of the Arts, also known as Tokyo Geidai. A joint orchestra from both establishments will be performing in London, Oxford and Tokyo under esteemed conductor Trevor Pinnock, Principal Guest Conductor of the Academy Chamber Orchestra.

The ‘Eroica’ Symphony is one of the most radically compelling masterpieces of the early 19th century and inhabits a world of struggle and resolution. It shares thematic material with Beethoven’s ballet The Creatures of Prometheus. Mozart’s well-known and beguiling Sinfonia concertante for violin and viola features a soloist from each institution.
