Salzburg’s maestro is irreplaceable

The Mozarteum had plenty of time to find  chief conductor to succeed Ivor Bolton, who is leaving after 12 years. But it seems they can’t.

They’ll muddle through next year with Giovanni Antonini as principal guest conductor, splitting himself three ways with his own ensemble Il Giardino Armonico and the Basle chamber orchestra.

Ivor, for his part, has been given the title of Honorary Conductor for Life and plans to work with the group several times a year.

  • Ivor is one of the best, and I worked with him in the early days. The Mozarteum is where I studied many years ago. But in the end no one in this world is irreplaceable. There is always someone there to step into all our shoes!!
