The chorus of Bavarian Radio has asked Peter Dijkstra to return as its next artistic director.

Dijkstra, who held the job from 2005 to 2016, replaces the Englishman Howard Arman, who will continue to guest-conduct the chorus.


  • La plus belle voix says:

    A decidedly odd move. The scent of a certain rodent in the air suspended, Marks the place where the story . . . (apologies to T.S. Eliot). It’s likely just an interim position, the candidate whom the chorus management (ostensibly Susanne Vongries, who she?) really desires not being available for a couple of seasons or so.

  • Peter says:

    Watch this space. Simon Halsey big friend of Rattle.

  • Ira says:

    Fine choice, Peter is quite talented.
