Young Israeli is upgraded to GMD in Bremen

Yoel Gamzou, hired last summer as music director of Theater Bremen, has been made Generalmusikdirektor and given a three-year contract extension.

Gamzou, 29, signed up last month with Michael Lewin’s agency in Vienna.

Amazing how quickly things can happen when an agent gets involved.

  • There is a long list now of impressive Israeli conductors:

    Inbal*
    Steinberg
    Oren*
    Fisch*
    Ettinger*
    Volkov*
    Meir Wellber*
    Shani

    … judging from (*) work I have heard. Must be a result of prioritizing musical education in that small country, and of capable teachers.

    You said it. Especially with certain Levin plants.

  • While Jewish people often display great talent and leadership, Israel has a population of over 8 million, so it is not surprising if they produce a few good conductors in every generation. And they do have at least one good music school.
