Until 2014, the Belgian musician Jeroenn Berwaerts (b. 1975) used to serve as the principal trumpeter of the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, a radio orchestra based in Hamburg. Currently he is a professor at the Hochschule fur Musik, Theater und Medien Hannover (HMTMH) in Germany. Meanwhile, Christian Schmitt is a German organist who has performed such works as Benjamin Britten's Requiem with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra (BPO) under the direction of Simon Rattle. The two musicians have planned a program at Art Tower Mito that comprises baroque works by such composers as Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750) and the Italian Alessandro Marcello (1669-1747), along with contemporary works by such composers as the Japanese Toshio Hosokawa (b. 1955) and the Czech Petr Eben (1929-2007).
