It’s Guy Eshed, 35, principal flute of the faltering Maggio Musicale in Florence, where he has worked closely with Zubin Mehta. Before that, he was in Daniel Barenboim’s West-Eastern Diwan. He will be joint co-principal with Yossi Arnheim.

    very good appointment of most fine flautist. Pity that these days the Israel Philharmonic seems to suffer with people disrupting their concerts. Probably after what happened 3 years ago they will not play in the Proms in London agaon.

    Well done Guy. You are a very fine flute-playing musician and I am truly happy for you.
