The post title says it all: the next music director of the Houston Symphony Orchestra will be Columbian conductor Andres Orozco-Estrada. More about the announcement here.

Update: And here's an article with interesting information about how the new music director was chosen.

Excellent news, at least from my limited experience. I was very impressed indeed by a Mahler Second Symphony he conducted in Vienna in December.

Thanks, Mark! I am sure I read that review (I followed your Vienna trip closely), but did the name stick? Noooo.

Anyway, I trust your musical judgment in things Mahlerian, and happy to read the good report.
