CBSO welcomes Andris Nelsons

The CBSO today announced the appointment of Andris Nelsons as music director starting next year, taking over the post from Sakari Oramo (made famous by Lord Rattle of Simon).


The CBSO does good podcasts so it’s no surprise there’s a half hour interview with him in the current edition. Click on the widget to listen to it here:


Andris’ first public concert will be on November 11th at Symphony Hall. Tickets are free and will be available from October 29th.

There’s further coverage on The Stirrer (from where I snarfed the photo), and, um, nowhere else yet.
