Bookmark and Share

Kent Nagano has announced he will leave the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal at the end of his contract in 2020, leaving both of Montreal's main orchestras along with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra looking for new musical directors to take up the baton. Mr. Nagano, who will be the second-longest-serving maestro at the OSM when his term ends, renewed his contract on his other main job with the Hamburg State Opera and Philharmonic Orchestra 20 months ago. Nagano who came to the Montreal orchestra when it was emerging from shambles, leaves the orchestra in much better position with a new concert hall and a solid balance sheet and years of critical acclaim. 

As the Orchestre prepares for a new season, Nagano stopped by the Breakfast Television studios to discuss it along with the upcoming OSM Classical Spree, Festival Virée Classique!   WATCH THE INTERVIEW
