Kent Nagano / GSO

American conductor Kent Nagano is in Gothenburg. On April 19 and 20 he performs Twilight of the Gods (Ragnarök) by Richard Wagner with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra (GSO).
 
It has been speculated that Nagano will succeed Gustavo Dudamel as the principal conductor of the GSO. He has been confirmed by GSO as a name being discussed in the ongoing recruitment process. His time in Gothenburg is a good chance to see if the combination with GSO works.
 
”Anything is possible,” said Kent Nagano in an interview with Göteborgs-Posten (published on April 13). ”GSO has a long and good tradition and it would be an honour, but chemistry and timing, and personalities have to be right. It's about becoming a member of the family. We shall see.”
 
Nagano has previously been a guest conductor with the GSO performing two other operas by Wagner: Ride of the Valkyries in 2002 and the Rhinegold in 2005. He is currently the music director of the Montreal Symphony Orchestra and the Bavarian State Opera.
