Concertgebouw hints at next conductormain
The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra will launch its own European youth orchestra this summer.
Given the ghastly title ‘RCO Young’ and made up of pan-European players aged 14 to 17, it will perform the Mendelssohn concerto and Tchaikovsky 4 in Amsterdam and Brussels under the baton of Pablo Heras-Casado, it was announced today.
The Spanish conductor is presently under-employed as principal guest conductor at Teatro Real in Madrid and director of the Granada Festival. He has to be added to the shortlist for the C’bouw’s next music director.
