Berlin names new Kapellmeister

March 19, 2017 by norman lebrecht


Six months ago, the Komische Oper named the Canadian Jordan de Souza as Kapellmeister for next season.

Now it has added the German conductor Ivo Hentschel since it will be without a General Music Director for the foreseeable future. Hentschel is presently Kapellmeister at Cottbus.

Should make for an interesting competition.
