Seiji Ozawa

Seiji Ozawa was the first Asian conductor to rise to international stardom. After his Koussivitzky Prize at Tanglewood, he honed his skills as assistant to Leonard Bernstein in New York and Herbert von Karajan in Berlin. Directorships of the Nissei Theatre in Tokyo, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Tanglewood Festival, the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Vienna State Opera followed. In 2016 he withdrew from the international scene to Japan, dedicating his time to the Mito Chamber Orchestra and to teaching.

His defining qualities have always been esprit at the rostrum, a deep respect for the works he conducts, precision in rehearsal and friendliness and modesty in deportment.

Now, for the first time, his complete recordings on Deutsche Grammophon are collected together in one set.
