Maestro move: Berlin picks young Britmain
The Deutsche Sinfonie Orchester (DSO-Berlin), casting around for a music director to succeed Tugan Sokhiev who has moved to the Bolshoi, have named their next chief.
He is Robin Ticciati, 32, music director at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra. He will have to give up one of those jobs when he begins in Berlin, two years from now.
The deal was done by AskonasHolt, city brokers of Simon Rattle bonds.
