Lyon finally names music director, with a British twistmain
Five days after we broke the story, the Orchestre national de Lyon has just begun a press conference to announce Nikolaj Szeps-Znaider as the next music director, starting September 2020.
What they are not announcing yet is that a very young British conductor, Ben Glassberg, will join shortly as associate or resident conductor, the title is still being fixed. Ben, 24, won the last Besancon competition and has made a terrific impact. Last month, he was named principal conductor of Glyndebourne on Tour.
