Many Happy Returns from Classical Source to Herbert Blomstedt, 90 today.
Blomstedt’s Leipzig Gewandhaus tour plans are below, and a few months ago Matthias Hain, of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, wrote to say: “In July 2017 [Blomstedt] will be celebrating his 90th birthday with us, i.e. we will tour some of the great cathedrals (Bamberg, Würzburg…) with Bruckner 5. The final concert will be at St. Florian – where Bruckner was buried. Very exciting…!”
