Autogrpah album page signed by the great Japanese-born conductor, led BSO for 29 years

Price: $15.00

Description:
(b. 1935) Japanese-born conductor, he directed various orchestras 1964-73 until he became music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra in 1973. His tenure at the BSO lasted for 29 years, the longest tenure of any music director, surpassing the 25 years held by Serge Koussevitsky. In 1994, the BSO dedicated its new Tanglewood concert hall "Seiji Ozawa Hall" in honor of his 20th season with the orchestra. Ozawa caused controversy in 1996/97 with sudden demands for change at Tanglewood and he stood down from the BSO music directorship in 2002. An advocate of 20th century classical music, he also became known for his unorthodox conducting wardrobe, where he wore the traditional formal dress with a white turtleneck rather than the usual starched shirt, waistcoat and white tie. He was principal conductor of the Vienna State Opera 2002-2010 and continues to play a key role as a teacher and administrator at Tanglewood Music Center. Signed 4 x 5 light blue autograph album leaf with unsigned b&w portrait for matting and framing.
