Andris Nelsons extends his contract with City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra

The Latvian conductor Andris Nelsons, thought to be on the short list of candidates for the music directorship of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, has extended his contract with his current ensemble, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. According to the CBSO, Nelsons has added one year to his commitment, through the 2014-15 season, and is subject to “annual rolling renewal.” The news would seem to reduce the likelihood of a Nelsons-BSO match, though young maestros with multiple podiums are hardly rare. French-Canadian conductor Yannick Nezet-Seguin, 37, assumes the music directorship of the Philadelphia Orchestra next month, while serving as the principal conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic, music director of Montreal’s Orchestre Métropolitain, and principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic.
