Israel Phil bloods new baton

Israel Phil bloods new baton

Christoph Eschenbach has cancelled his second week in Israel after falling unaccountably unwell.

The Philharmonic are using his withdrawal to make a huge fuss of a young Israeli substitute.

Rotem Nir, 26, is head of music at the Israeli Opera and assistant conductor at a couple of orchestras.

Next week he gets a crack at Beethoven’s fifth as his Philharmonic debut.

Lahav Shani thinks highly of him.
