An English conductor rallies NurembergNews
Jonathan Darlington began his tenure tonight as chief conductor of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra.
He opened with a love-bomb concert:
Richard Strauss: Don Juan, tone poem op. 20
Hector Berlioz: Roméo et Juliette op. 17, Scène d’amour
Sergei Prokofiev: Romeo and Juliet, ballet, excerpts
Darlington, 65, is seen as a safe pair of hands after the young Mahler competition winner, Kahchun Wong.
He’s a former head of Vancouver Opera and the Duisburg Philharmonic.
