Mariss Jansons returns to direct the Berliner Philharmoniker, rekindling their long-standing relationship that began in 1976. Tokyo's Suntory Hall is alive to a programme of particular musical energy - sometimes overt and joyous, sometimes suppressed and intense. Jansons' fidelity to music composed during the Soviet era remains heartfelt: Shostakovich's Violin Concerto No. 1, featuring soloist Hilary Hahn, is rendered with poise, elegance and demoniac vigour. This piece is framed by two sprightly works: Weber's charming, zesty Overture to Oberon and Dvorak's 8th Symphony, executed with Bohemian-esque lyricism and verve.
