Conductor Joji Hattori - Home in Two Worlds
Joji Hattori - Wanderer zwischen den Welten
Born in Tokyo, grew up in Vienna: Joji Hattori has two identities. He looks Japanese, speaks Viennese and has his heart in both worlds. But as an artist one string to his bow was never enough for him. He was celebrated as a musical prodigy, won the Menuhin Competition and had a career as a concert violinist. However, he was quickly drawn to conducting, studied with Lorin Maazel, and became a festival director and guest conductor with many orchestras. And his latest project? Since 2015 he has been running Vienna's finest Japanese restaurant, always on the lookout for new products and bold dishes!
