Conductor Kurt Masur: hand signed b/w photo, authentic autograph with silver pen. New York Philharmonic label at the back side. Photo by ChristianSteiner.
The autograph comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
Masur is well known to orchestras and audiences alike as both a distinguished conductor and humanist.
From 1970 until 1996, Maestro Masur served as Gewandhaus Kapellmeister of the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, a position of profound historic importance. Mr. Masur is a guest conductor with the world's leading orchestras and holds the lifetime title of Honorary Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. A professor at the Leipzig Academy of Music since 1975, he has received numerous honors: in 1995, he received the Cross of the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany; in 1996 he received the Gold Medal of Honor for Music from the National Arts Club; in 1997 he received the titles of Commander of the Legion of Honor from the French government and New York City Cultural Ambassador from the City of New York – and many more oders.
In September 2002, Mr. Masur became music director of the Orchestre National de France in Paris. Since September 2000 he has been principal conductor of the London Philharmonic. From 1991-2002 he was music director of the New York Philharmonic; following his eleven-year tenure he was named Music Director Emeritus, becoming the first New York Philharmonic music director to receive that title, and only the second (after the late Leonard Bernstein, who was named Laureate Conductor) to be given an honorary position.
