    After a fertile musical relationship with Yannick Nézet-Séguin, who is now musical director at the Metropolitan New York, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra is writing a new chapter in its history with a young conductor who is coveted by some of the most prestigious orchestras. Israeli conductor Lahav Shani is not yet thirty years old, but is already demonstrating exceptional talent. His maturity, naturalness and instinctive musicality caught the attention of several prestigious orchestras when he won the Gustav Mahler Conducting Competition in Bamberg in 2013. Since then, he has been inundated with invitations from prestigious orchestras: the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Dresden Staatskapelle, the Tonhalle Orchester Zürich, the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, the Manchester Hallé Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the London Philharmoni Orchestra, to name but a few, and to say nothing of his appointments as successor to Quebec-born conductor Nézet-Séguin at the Rotterdam and to Zubin Mehta at the helm of the Israel Philharmonic next season. He has done us the honour for his first visit to avenue Montaigne of conducting the famous Rite of Spring by Stravinsky. Impatience is mounting!
