Vladimir Jurowski was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Philharmonic Society last night at the BBC Proms as he ended 15 years with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. From 2001 to 2013 he was also music director of Glyndebourne Opera.

He moves on now to become general music director of Bayerische Staatsoper.

    He’s a great conductor!

  • A worthy recipient.

  • Brian Cheeseman says:

    Loved his programming. Last night was a good example.
    Hindemith rather than Beethoven for a change.

  • Will says:

    He’s going to be very much missed I think, real one of a kind conductor, fantastic programming, and a nice guy too.

  • The Great Escape says:

    Another top conductor flees Brexitain!
    Lucky old Vlad!
    Lucky Berlin & Munich!
