Welcome Back To Washington Ivan Fischer!

"The National Symphony Orchestra has named Ivan Fischer as its principal guest conductor, starting with the 2006-07 season, the orchestra announced yesterday. The initial contract will be for three years, meaning that Fischer may be the senior artistic figure within the orchestra when the present music director, Leonard Slatkin, steps down at the end of the 2007-08 season. Fischer will lead two weeks in 2006-07, and a minimum of three weeks in each of the two subsequent seasons."
