The couple, who have both previously been married, announced their engagement in January - also via their social media channels.

Erin auditioned in 2014 as one of several serious candidates to succeed Glenn Dicterow as Concertmaster of the New York Philharmonic – yet withdraw her application after the announcement of the engagement.

In an interview with the New York Times recently, Maestro Vänskä called the relationship a ‘private matter’ – and advised he would refrain from taking part in decisions regarding Ms Keefe’s status within the orchestra.

Our hearty congratulations to the happy couple.
