Congratulations!

NY Philharmonic Alan Gilbert NDR Elbphilharmonie

All of us in the New York Philharmonic family congratulate Alan Gilbert on the news that the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchestra in Hamburg has appointed him to be their next chief conductor, beginning in the 2019–20 season. It marks Alan’s return to that orchestra, which he served as principal guest conductor from 2004 to 2015 — but now in its brand-new home, where he led the New York Philharmonic this past April. We congratulate the Hamburgers on their choice!
