Ivor Bolton announced as new Music Director of Basel Symphony Orchestra

We are delighted to report that British conductor Ivor Bolton has this morning been announced by Basel Symphony Orchestra as their new Music Director as of September 2016.

Expressing his excitement over the collaboration, Ivor Bolton said: “I am very happy to work with this committed and highly professional ensemble. For a concert to become a memorable experience for both, audience and orchestra, there has to be trust, open-mindedness and passion. All of which I could immediately sense in abundance with the Basel Symphony Orchestra. I am hungry for our shared discoveries in symphonic music, ranging from the classical period up to classical modernism”.
