#FLVfromhome: Seiji Ozawa, The Living Spirit of Music

Sunday 7 June 2020

5.30 p.m.

Seiji Ozawa, expressing his passion for teaching and conviction that practical chamber music experience, particularly work in quartets, is essential, founded his Academy in 2004. Each year, twenty-four hand-picked young talents, stringently selected from the world’s leading conservatories and competitions, gather in Switzerland at the Seiji Ozawa International Academy Switzerland to work in ensembles and quartets with Nobuko Imai, Pamela Frank and Sadao Harada, three tutors and performers of international renown.


In 2015, the Seiji Ozawa International Academy Switzerland held its annual closure at the Fondation Louis Vuitton with a public string-quartet master class and an exceptional concert of quartets and orchestra conducted by Maestro Kazuki Yamada.


The documentary “Seiji Ozawa, The Living Spirit of Music” looks back on this event.
