The former music director of the New York Philharmonic has been named principal guest conductor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Orchestra, starting next April.

That will keep him partly occupied until he takes over as chief conductor at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie in September 2019.

    Never much cared for Gilbert with the NY Phil. It won’t take long for audiences in Tokyo and Hamburg to experience Gilbert-remorse.

    No one wants to experience downward mobility.
