New Jersey’s new music director takes a third jobmain
No sooner was Xian Zhang announced as music director of the New Jersey Symphony than she’s being paraded as principal guest conductor with the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.
Xian, 42, is already chief conductor of the Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano Giuseppe Verdi in Milan, where she lives.
Sounds like she’s got an agent who just can’t say No.
At this rate she’ll be the first Chinese woman conductor to burn out in the West.
