The Israeli pianist Ammiel Bushakevitz, who features on page 5 of my book Why Beethoven, has placed his worldwide career in the hands of the Munich-based Künstlersekretariat am Gasteig.

Among other artist moves, Askonas Holt has taken on the Mexican-American tenor Joshua Guererro for European representation.

The trombonist Anthony Wise has been appointed executive director of York Symphony Orchestra in Pennsylvania.

Michael Balke has been named principal guest conductor at Munich’s Staatstheater am Gärtnerplatz.


  • Bill Evans says:

    We saw Michael Balke in March when he conducted the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Amazing and charismatic conductor – the Theatre is lucky to have him!
