Boston Symphony Orchestra Names Andris Nelsons as Music Director

Recommended Posts


From the WQXR blog: the Boston Symphony Orchestra has named Andris Nelsons as its new Music Director, to fill the vacancy left by the then-ailing James Levine; he's signed a five-year contract beginning with the 2014-15 season.

Nelsons also acknowledged the "worrisome" state of American orchestras. "It's a little different in American than in Europe," he said. "We have to think about education. We as an orchestra are the biggest messengers of culture in the city. We have a platform and a task to take as many people on board with the BSO as possible. Even if one concertgoer can bring a friend to a concert, that’s how it happens. One by one, people will think about orchestras."
