Zubin Mehta in conversation with Walter Küssner (8 min.)
In November 2019, Zubin Mehta and the Berliner Philharmoniker toured Japan together. For their second tour programme, they presented Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony. The interpretation was previously performed at the Philharmonie Berlin, and conductor Zubin Mehta met with Philharmoniker violist Walter Küssner for an interview. Among the themes of the conversation are the anticipation of the first concerts together in Japan, Mehta’s affinity for the music of Anton Bruckner and memories of his long joint partnership with the Philharmoniker, which began 58 years ago.
