Ono's contributions -the crystalline clarity he brought to the most complex texture's, meticulous highlighting of each important line, and his command of the overall architecture- contributed to making this a rewarding experience even for those encountering the concerto for the first time.
Kazushi is Music Director of Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra and Orquestra Simfònica de Barcelona i Nacional de Catalunya, while also holding the position of Artistic Director to the New National Theatre Tokyo. Alongside these positions, Kazushi's musical flexibility has recently sent him to orchestras such as Hallé Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Houston Symphony Orchestra.
From 2008 to 2017, Kazushi Ono maintained his position as Principal Conductor of Opéra National de Lyon. Prior to his post in Lyon, Kazushi spent six highly successful seasons as Music Director of Theatre Royal de la Monnaie where he took up the baton from Antonio Pappano.
Kazushi was awarded ‘Officier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres’ by French cultural minister Françoise Nyssen, a further distinguished title adding to the prestigious Asahi Prize, given in January 2015, for his contribution to Japanese society.
