Maestro move: German orchestra picks Brit stick

We hear that the Deutsche Philharmonie Merck in Darmstadt are about to name Ben Palmer as their chief conductor.

He starts in September, with Mahler 4.

Ben has been artistic director of the Orchestra of St Paul’s in London for the past ten years.

He was introduced to the Darmstadt orchestra by Sir Roger Norrington.
