This year the Tokyo Spring Festival will celebrate its 20th anniversary. Japan’s biggest classical music festival will run from March 15 till April 21, 2024. The festival comprises various concerts – including opera, orchestra concerts, chamber music and Lieder concerts – which will be held not only in concert halls but also museums and various places in Ueno Park, Tokyo. A central pillar of this programme is a complete cycle of Beethoven’s piano sonatas performed by one of its most eminent exponents: Austrian pianist and Beethoven connoisseur Rudolf Buchbinder. He released a complete edition of the Beethoven sonatas “Live from Salzburg” on Deutsche Grammophon in 2021.

STAGE+ will broadcast LIVE two of Buchbinder’s concerts from the Tokyo Spring Festival in 4K UHD. The first concert features some of Beethoven’s best-known sonatas, including the impassioned “Pathétique” and the expansive “Waldstein”; the second comprises the remarkable final three sonatas.
