Major upgrade: Timpanist gets conductor contractmain
When two conductors cancelled on the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France last December, up stepped the timpanist and did a terrific job.
Adrien Perruchon, 32, had been taking lessons with Esa-Pekka Salonen, François-Xavier Roth and Alain Altinoglu.
As of today, he is a fully-fledged conductor with a contract at a major agency. He will be managed by the London office of KD Schmid, the Hannover agency that walks big and tall since it signed Andris Nelsons to Boston.
