Breaking: Barenboim gets a new boss

Matthias Schulz, artistic and finance director of Salzburg’s Mozart Foundation, is to be the next intendant of Berlin’s Sataatsoper.

Schulz, 38, succeeds Jürgen Flimm, who is retiring at 73.

The switch will be officially announced this afternoon.

Schulz is described as a pianist and economist. Barenboim, the music director, will have tested him out on four-hand.



Among his successful Salzburg initiatives is a Mozarteum residency in Cuba.
