First performances in Japan and New Zealand

Following the world premiere in Berlin two weeks ago, Stefan Dohr will give the first performance in Japan on 15 and 16 February of Hans Abrahamsen's horn concerto written for him.
The partners are the NHK Symphony Orchestra and Paavo Järvi, who also took the podium in Berlin. The New Zealand premiere follows a few days later with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra under Giordano Bellincampi.
