Maestro move: Alan Gilbert protégé wins German orchmain
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.’
