Christian Thielemann: I don’t need to be chief conductorNews
The German condcutor is being headhunted by the Chicago Symphony and Berlin’s Staatsoper.
Does he really need a job?
He tells Merkur.de his diary is blocked through to 2028: ‘I have things I can’t cancel. I have inquiries that I could take on… Tours are planned, including the Vienna Philharmonic. There are opera revivals and a ‘Ring’ at La Scala.”…I’m very relaxed and just have a look. By the way, I don’t have to be the boss anymore. Ever since I was 28, ever since I took office in Nuremberg, I’ve always been the boss somewhere.’
