Conductor, expecting baby, gives up jobNews
The German conductor Joana Mallwitz has decided to step down as general music director at the Nuremberg State Philharmonic in 2023.
She is expecting a baby this autumn and gives as her reason ‘that my family situation will change’.
Mallwitz, 35, regrets that she will not be able to lead the orchestra into the new hall for which she has campaigned.
A vibrant personality on the German scene, she will take a break and return in another role.
