Yoel Gamzou has been named music director in Bremen.

Yoel – who is 29, not 30 as stated in German media – is a multi-talented, thoughtful composer who has created and recorded his own version of Mahler’s tenth symphony. He has previously been Kapellmeister in Kassel, where Mahler preceded him.

    Yoel Gamzou is 30 years old… Was born on March 10, 1987. Please correct, Norman.

  • Yoel Gamzou says:

    Just in order to clarify this – Norman is absolutely correct, I am 29, only turning 30 next year. I hope I don’t have to submit a copy of my passport in order to remove all doubt…?
