Leipzig nails its boss

The Gewandhaus has renewed its contract with director Andreas Schulz until the summer of 2025, taking him up to one year short of retirement age.

Schulz, a pastor’s son, has been in charge at Leipzig since 1998.

He has worked with three music directors – Blomstedt, Chailly and Nelsons.

  • Wow, no comments? I’ve never even heard of this person. Seems to me that the Gewandhaus would be a pretty prestigious conducting post. Am I wrong?

  • If you can nab the likes of Blomstedt, Chailly and Nelsons you’re doing something right! I remember the days when the Gewandhaus had sunk into near oblivion, until a chappie called Masure dragged them up by their bootstraps!
