The Texan conductor Case Scaglione, Associate Conductor with Alan Gilbert’s New York Philharmonic, has been named Chief Conductor of the Württemberg chamber orchestra in Heilbronn.
Case writes: ‘A little over a year ago I had the pleasure of making my German debut with one of the most sensitive, responsive, and overall incredible orchestras that I’ve ever had the privilege of working with:The Württembergisches Kammerorchester. And I’m excited to announce to all of you that I will be starting as their Chief Conductor from September of 2018. I could not be more proud and excited.’
Alan Gilbert says: ‘Case Scaglione is one of the most gifted conductors of the younger generation, and my belief in him has only grown over time. He has a deep and cultivated musical sensibility that will be a perfect fit for this marvellous orchestra, and I can’t wait to hear what this partnership will reveal in the years to come.’
