Just in: Boston and Leipzig put Nelsons on never-ending contractmain
The Boston Symphony has renewed its music director for three more years, to the summer of 2025.
But the contract has an evergreen clause, ‘reflecting a mutual intent for a long-term commitment between the BSO and Mr. Nelsons well beyond the terms of any of their contracts.’ He will conduct at least 12 weeks of the year in Boston.
At the same time, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra renewed Nelsons’s contract for another five years in similar fashion, up to 2027
Nelsons 41, is the obedient servant of two masters.
