Maestro moves: Spaniard beats American to lead Luxembourg orch

Gustavo Gimeno is to be the new chief conductor of the Luxembourg Philharmonic, succeeding Emanuel Krivine.

He was preferred to the only other shortlisted candidate, Joshua Weilerstein. Details here.

Gimeno has been rising all year like a comet. A percussionist in the Concertgebouw, he stood in several times for Mariss Jansons and has been hotly fancied for several vacancies. Luxembourg is rich and has a terrific hall. Can he bring it to life?

  • I had the chance to attend the MunichPhil concert in Frankfurt last week, where Gimeno stood in for Maazel – terrific. And, as far as I was told by someone who knows the orchestra very well, the musicians love him.

    Congratulations Luxembourg!
