The outgoing music director at St Louis Symphony, David Robertson, has been named director of conducting studies at the Juilliard School in New York.
Robertson, 59, will be the principal teacher for conducting degree students, working with three or four students each academic year and choosing future candidates.
Juilliard president Joseph W. Polisi said: ‘David’s professional expertise and experience will allow our conducting students and our orchestral players to benefit enormously from his artistry. Of course, David will build on the exceptional work of Alan Gilbert, who transformed Juilliard’s program during his tenure and has helped shape the next generation of eminent conductors.’
