Brussels Philharmonic | Kazushi Ono

Kazushi Ono


This marvelously passionate conductor (‘a phenomenon’, according the French newspaper Le Figaro) divides, as from September 2022, his time between Tokyo (where he is music director of the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra and artistic director of the New National Theatre Tokyo) and Brussels, where he begins his tenure as music director of the Brussels Philharmonic: "I am really impressed by the full sound, the versatility and the passion of the musicians."

music director Kazushi Ono


Kazushi Ono’s musical personality was formed by the cultures of both Japan, where he was born, and Europe, where he studied. His work reflects both influences and crosses styles and forms, from Baroque to new commissions and from orchestral to opera. He has worked in opera houses and concert halls all over the world and recently took over as Music Director of Brussels Philharmonic while also serving as Music Director of Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra (TMSO) and Artistic Director of New National Theatre Tokyo.
