Maestro moves: Osmo Vänskä takes job in Iceland

We hear that the Minnesota music director has been named principal guest conductor in the far north, working with music director Ilan Volkov.

Might need more of those woolly sweaters.


In other moves, Jun Märkl has been named music director of Spain’s Basque national orchestra, La Orquesta de Euskadi (OSE).

A good day to have an ä in your name.
