A few days before the Berlin Philharmonic will vote upon a new chief conductor, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra announces that Mariss Jansons will serve as chief conductor until 2021, extending his current contract which runs until 2018. Jansons and the director of the Bayerische Rundfunk, Ulrich Wilhelm, agreed on this in a meeting that took place after an internal voting process within the orchestra had come to an end in the last few days. Jansons is since 2003 in this position, as successor to Eugen Jochum, Rafael Kubelik, Sir Colin Davis and Lorin Maazel.
