They don’t waste time in Southern California.

The LA Phil have been in touch to confirm our report that David Rejano Cantero will be its new principal trombone.

Starting first thing next Monday.


David is presently principal at the Munich Philharmonic. He’ll barely have time to pack a bag.

    Actually, a substantial amount of time may have been “wasted” already, if the fact that his audition for the LA Phil position was completed some 15 months ago is taken into consideration. In reality of course, this “delay” is not nearly as important as the quality of the musical results.
