Zubin adds another rolemain
Zubin Mehta has been named honorary chairman of the George Enescu International Music Festival in Romania. He inherits the title in 2017 from Ioan Holender, former head of the Vienna State Opera who continues as the festival’s artistic director.
Mehta, 79, said yesterday: ‘I can hardly wait to return to Romania. You have the most beautiful festival in the world.’ Mehta is music director for life of the Israel Philharmonic and chief conductor of the Maggio Musicale in Florence.
