Maestro move: German chief quits ‘for personal reasons’

The chief conductor of the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz has handed in his notice, effective 2018.

Karl-Heinz Steffens, 55, says ‘there are many personal reasons for my decision (Es sind viele persönliche Gründe, die mich zu meinem Entschluss bewogen haben)’.

He has been doing some good last-minute jump-ins and he became chief conductor at Norwegian Opera four months ago.


Steffens is a CAMI artist.
