The Suntory Hall – サントリーホール, was designed with the aim of “world’s most beautiful sound” as a concert hall for classical music. The Construction started in the late 1970s and it opened in October 1986. Not without reason Herbert von Karajan described the hall as “a jewel box of sound”. The Lucerne Festival Orchestra started its tour with two concerts in this amazing concert hall (6/7 October):
