The Tokyo Symphony orchestra began a series of concerts with the performance of "Heroic" third Symphony of Beethoven with a virtual conductor. Such a solution was found due to the fact that the main conductor of the orchestra and its music Director, the Englishman Jonathan Nott for a pandemic for several months can not come to Japan.
"An orchestra with a virtual conductor is for the first time. And the world might be too. At least I have not heard of such a thing. The chief conductor of our orchestra cannot come to Japan due to restrictions imposed following the spread of coronavirus in the world. Nott's last performance with the orchestra was in December. In addition, the orchestra missed, for musicians its method of creation of music – main", - told RIA Novosti the General Manager of the orchestra Tsutomu Tsuji.
