Taking place right now in Tokyo, Herbert Blomstedt is conducting Mahler Nine with the NHKSO (Tokyo eight hours ahead of London). Sadly, although it’s easy enough to find NHK radio, where the concert is confirmed as happening, silence reigns and advice is given that the stream is only available if the potential listener is in Japan. Good to know of course that the maestro is there (second performance scheduled for tomorrow) and I’ll keep checking in case today’s concert turns up on YouTube. Colin, October 15, 2022 at 10.30 a.m., disappointed!
