Guess who’s starting a new job tonight

It’s ….. Lorin.

The contract doesn’t kick in for another year, but Maazel, 81, has taken over the Munich Philharmonic 2011/12 season after Christian Thielemann huffed out. His opening programme features Shostakovich first cello concerto (soloist Sol Gabetta) and Scriabin Po√®me de l’Extase.

They must really love Lorin in Munich. He has already put in nine years there as head of the radio orchestra (1993-2002).

In a fortnight he’s back in London to continue his hitherto underwhelming Mahler cycle with the Philharmonia.
