On the occasion of yesterday’s concert at the Cologne Philharmonie, Concerto Köln appointed American conductor Kent Nagano, 67, as Honorary Conductor. The  ensemble and the conductor have enjoyed a close collaboration since 2011. Currently, the focus of their collaboration lies on academic research and, starting in 2021, on the historically informed performance of Wagner’s The Ring des Nibelungen.

Kent Nagano is currently General Music Director of the Hamburg State Opera and Chief Conductor of the Hamburg Philharmonic State Orchestra, Music Director of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Principal Guest Conductor of the Gothenburg Symphony and Conductor Laureate of the Deutsche Symphonie Orchester Berlin
