Beckmesser is happy to let you know (probably before many) that the OSR has appointed the young Japanese conductor Kazuki Yamada as principal guest conductor and that Janowski will be replaced in 2012 by Neeme Järvi.
Neeme Järvi was in Geneva last December for a stunning Chostakovitch 10th Symphony. The OSR played very well for him and delivered more colorful sound than for me. One Jarvi in Paris, one in Geneva ...
Youth and Experience. Is not this a good way to maintain the dual tradition of the OSR between Ansermet-ish modernism and Janowski's wiseness.
I look forwards to the future.
