Stepping in for Lorin Maazel in Munichmain
The Munich Philharmonic has patched together a concert season following the death of their music director.
Semyon Bychkov will open, spending three weeks with the orchestra after the summer break and conducting four programmes.
Others deputising are the 2015 music director Valery Gergiev, along with Zubin Mehta, Asher Fisch, Michael Sanderling, Pietari Inkinen, Eivind Gullberg Jensen and Christoph Eschenbach. Three young conductors make their debut: Michał Nesterowicz Robert Trevino and Andris Poga.
A concert of Maazel’s compositions scheduled for his 85th birthday in March has been replaced with Richard Strauss.
