A long-standing partnership
Joji Hattori and the Mirabaud Group enjoy a long-standing partnership. Since 2005 the celebrated conductor has led large ensembles as part of concerts supported by Mirabaud, organised successively in London, Paris, Montreal, Basel, Madrid, Geneva and Zurich.
For the second time in their history, the Mirabaud Concerts stopped over in Paris. Conducted by maestro Joji Hattori, the Balearic Symphony Orchestra accompanied the young, talented pianist Khatia Buniatishvili as part of an exceptional concert. In studio 104 of Maison de la Radio, the musicians delighted the 700 guests in attendance with their performances of Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy and Piotr Ilitch Tchaikovsky.
The Mirabaud concerts made their grand return in autumn 2015, this time stopping in Zurich (where the Group has operated an office since 1998). On this occasion Joji Hattori took the audience on a journey into the world of Mozart, accompanied by t he Mezzo-Soprano singer Kate Lindsey and the Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands. The Symphony Orchestra of the Balearic Islands is an ensemble he knows particularly well, having conducted it on numerous previous occasions.
At the Bâtiment des Forces Motrices in Geneva on 25 September 2013, Mirabaud hosted a Viennese gala evening including the most popular opera arias and operettas. Conducted by Joji Hattori and accompanied by the Vienna Chamber Orchestra, soprano Daniela Fally and baritone Klemens Sander performed the arias of Mozart, Rossini, Johann Strauss II, Lehár, Millöcker and Joseph Strauss.
Mirabaud hosted a concert at the Sala Cámara in Madrid on 27 November 2012, conducted by Joji Hattori and featuring a star guest, soprano Ainhoa Arteta. Arteta also christened Dominique Wavre’s yacht, which took part in the Barcelona World Race towards the end of 2010 with the support of the bank.
In February 2008, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra gave another concert, this time in Basel, to celebrate the opening of the Mirabaud & Cie, banquiers privés branch there.
In September 2006, Montreal was the venue for the third Mirabaud Concert, marking the 20th anniversary of Mirabaud’s presence in the city.
In March 2006, Mirabaud took part in the Mozart Year celebrations by organising a concert at the Salle Gaveau in Paris. The Vienna Chamber Orchestra, conducted by Joji Hattori, gave two young artists, Maria Radutu, pianist, and Iwona Sobotka, soprano, an opportunity to shine.
Because of its passion for classical music, Mirabaud held its first concert outside Switzerland in October 2005 amid the prestigious surroundings of London’s Middle Temple. The concert was under the artistic direction of Joji Hattori and featured pianist Maria João Pires and the London Philharmonic Orchestra.
