Alan Gilbert to be new music director of New York PhilThe New York Philharmonic today ended several years of speculation as to who would succeed Lorin Maazel in two years time, and named Alan Gilbert as the new music director. Gilbert will be the first native New Yorker in the post and indeed both his parents were members of the orchestra.
Next season Gilbert completes an eight-year term as chief conductor of the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra where he has had a reputation for innovative and contemporary programming — in Stockholm he has presided over festivals devoted to composers Hans Werner Henze, Henri Dutilleux and John Adams.
