De Waart To Hong Kong?

Will Edo de Waart become the next music director of the Hong Kong Philharmonic? “In a press release issued late Wednesday afternoon, the HKPO said that the 62-year-old Dutch maestro ‘has expressed an interest in the music directorship of the HKPO, but would like to get to know the Orchestra before considering the possibility further’.” De Waart is ending his tenure as music director of the Sydney Symphony and is former music director of the San Francisco Symphony and Minnesota Orchestra.
