We are delighted to announce that Jonathan Nott has become Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie and will take up this position from July 2014, with an initial agreement of five years. As well has working with Christian Fausch and his team on the artistic vision of the ensemble, Jonathan will conduct the Orchestra on at least one major European tour every year.
Jonathan first worked with the Orchestra in March this year, conducting Mahler’s Symphony No.9 on tour in Germany, including concerts at the Berlin Philharmonie, Alte Oper in Frankfurt, Cologne Philharmonie and the Laeiszhalle in Hamburg. From day one, it was clear this was the start of a special relationship and Jonathan is thrilled to be a part of this exciting young orchestra’s future.
