Paul Daniel CBE contract as Music Director of the Orchestre National de Bordeaux Aquitaine extended to 202125.05.17
The Orchestre National de Bordeaux Aquitaine have announced that Paul Daniel’s contract as Music Director will be extended to July 2021. Paul Daniel took up the post in 2013, shortly after the opening of the orchestra’s new Auditorium, since when he has developed a close rapport with the public both in the Salle Dutilleux and the Grand Théâtre. Earlier this season the orchestra gave its first concert, under Paul Daniel’s direction, at the new Philharmonie in Paris and he and the orchestra are this week recording with Deutsche Grammophon for the first time with the young French star soprano Gaëlle Arquez. Paul Daniel will close the ONBA’s season on June 9 and 11 with performances of the Verdi Requiem.
