Kurt Masur Anniversary Gala: In celebration of Kurt Masur's 80th Birthday Gewandhausorchester Leipzig

About

In 1970, Kurt Masur was appointed musical director of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, a position he would hold for twenty-six years. Over the decades he brought his technical discipline and irreproachable expertise to concert halls all around the world, but it was to Leipzig—and to the ensemble that became one of the world’s best under his baton—that he chose to return, this time as conductor laureate, for a celebratory concert in honor of his 80th birthday.
