A real coup for the city of music: Andris Nelsons has been announced as the 21st Gewandhauskapellmeister in Leipzig. He's the youngest conductor in this position of the past 150 years. Although his inaugural concert will only take place at the beginning of the 2017/2018 season, he can already be experienced live in Leipzig for several concerts in 2016, both with the Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

In 2015, Germany is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the German Reunification. The highlight of the celebrations in Leipzig will be the Festival of Lights on 9 October. "Liberty - Equality - Fraternity?" is the motto of this year - critically backlighting this statement and, thus, punctuated by a question mark.
Throughout the evening, the visitors of the Festival of Lights are, as in previous years, invited to form an illuminated "89" with thousands of candles.
