Maestro move: German orch picks a Finn

The Southwest German Philharmonie has named Ari Rasilainen, 57, as its new chief conductor. He is presently with the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz in Ludwigshafen.

Like most Finnish batons, Ari is a former student of Jorma Panula, with top-ups from the late Arvid Jansons.
