Another 70th birthday celebration for a great conductor! This one is for Mariss Jansons who turned 70 on January 14, 2013. This birthday greeting video comes from the Oslo Philharmonic, an orchestra which was proud to call Jansons music director at one time. The spoken tribute comes from CEO Odd Gullberg - an odd tribute, one might say. The orchestra is rehearsing Mozart's Magic Flute Overture and the conductor is Eivind Aadland.
Mariss Jansons is currently music director of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the Bavarian Radio Symphony in Munich. Both of them are outstanding orchestras.
