Monday (7/9) on the Cincinnati Enquirer blog Arts in Focus, Janelle Gelfand writes, “Paavo Järvi, conductor laureate of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, has added another orchestra to his titles. On Friday, it was announced that he will become chief conductor of the NHK Symphony in Japan at the start of the 2015-16 season. The Grammy-winning conductor has long had a strong relationship with Japan, and took the CSO there on two tours during his tenure in Cincinnati. He makes regular appearances on tour in Japan with his other orchestras, most recently in June 2012 with Frankfurt Radio Symphony. Järvi is in his second season as Music Director of the Orchestre de Paris (where his contract is extended to 2015-16 already), Music Director of Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Artistic Director of Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Next year, as Music Director Laureate of the Cincinnati Symphony, he’ll return to Cincinnati for a weekend of concerts.”
