PMF’s Three Main Orchestral Programs

PMF 2015, the 26th implementation since its founding in 1990, will feature Valery Gergiev as Artistic Director and mark the beginning of its path into a new quarter century. This is an introduction to the PMF Orchestra programs adorning the first season on that path.
This year once again, a wide variety of programs will be presented, including Program A, studded with well-known music from various parts of Europe, spanning across Germany, Austria, and the Czech Republic, Program B, with two symphonies allowing the stylistic evolution from the Classical era to the Romantic era to be experienced directly, and Program C, combining Beethoven’s majestic “Emperor” concerto with a masterpiece by Shostakovich − a specialty of Gergiev’s.

Bernstein Place: Seasons Series 〜Silvery Snow〜

Half a year has now passed since Bernstein Place, the new symbol of PMF, was established. Seasons change, and the Leonard Bernstein Statue currently shines in the silvery snow.
Nakajima Park is now softly blanketed with snow. Children can be seen cross-country skiing and sledding on the park grounds.
In this, the second in the series, we bring you the snowy visage of Bernstein Place.
