Lorin Maazel Has Resigned from the Munich Philharmonic Due to Poor Health

It has been announced that 84 year old, Maestro Lorin Maazel will stand down, effective immediately from his post as Music Director of the Munich Philharmonic – due to ill health.

Maestro Maazel, who did not specify the nature of his health difficulties, had served the position since 2012.

In addition, he has indicated on doctor’s orders he will not take any professional engagements during the 2014-15 season – to allow his body time to rest and recover.

Maazel’s wife Dietlinde Turban-Maazel has previously described the condition as: "a case of complete exhaustion brought on by a daunting conducting and travel schedule."
