Andris Nelsons: I’m not interested in Berlinmain
The incoming Boston Symphony conductor has made a categorical statement about his medium-term plans.
‘I will be too young in 2018 to take over from Simon Rattle,’ he tells Die Welt. ‘That was a strategic decision. I signalled it when I decided to be, from this autumn, chief conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.’
Nelsons is 35. He knows exactly where he’s going.
