Monday, September 12. 1983 THE CINCINNATI ENQUIRER TEMPO B-7 Michael Gielen Accepts West German Post BY RAY COOKLIS Enquirer Muiic Critic Conductor Michael. Gielen, music director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, has accepted! the post of chief conductor with the Southwest German Radio Orchestra in Baden-Baden, W5t Germany, the CSO announced Saturday. Glelen's five-year contract with the West German ensemble, which is noted for Its performances of 20th-century music, will take effect In the 1986-87 concert season, after the expiration of his current three-year pact with the CSO. : .-"This is a very prestigious post in .Europe. We think it's quite an hpnor for Michael, and we're very pleased," said James M. Ewell, president of the CSO board of trustees. Gielen will conduct both live and taped concerts, as well as recording sessions, with the Baden-Baden orchestra, which has given world premieres of more than 150 works since it was founded in 1945. CSO BOARD members, who were Informed of the appointment Friday, registered "surprise" at the news, Ewell said. "Those who know of the (German) orchestra were very Impressed." "What the appointment may mean for Glelen's future In Cincinnati is unknown so far. The MICHAEL GIELEN . . . CSO's current music director conductor, who is vacationing In Germany, could not be reached for comment. But Ewell noted that the Baden-Baden post will not affect Glelen's schedule during his current CSO contract. As for Glelen's continued relationship with the CSO after 1986, Ewell said, "I frankly don't know what effect it would have ... We have had no Indication from Jeremy Irons Granted Wish In 'The Real Thing' MichaeL We don't know what he'll do. "So we're Just where we would be anyway. We would not normally have even talked about that until midway through the current contract" Ewell held out the possibility that Gielen might want to continue his relationship with the CSO after 1986, continuing to divide his time between the United States and West Germany, where he also serves as artistic director of the Frankfurt Opera. "He holds the Cincinnati orchestra, and Cincinnati Itself, In very high esteem," Ewell said. "And multiple posts (for conductors) are not uncommon." MANY INTERNATIONALLY known conductors, In fact, hold down two or more major music directorships. For years, Zubin Mehta has been music director of the Israel Philharmonic while doubling In that position with its musical counterparts in, first, Los Angeles and, currently, New York. Chrlstoph von Dohnanyl is music director of the Cleveland Orchestra as well as the Hamburg Staat-, soper. The list goes on. "The day of the (full-time) resident music director seems to be over," Ewell said. CSO officials may learn more about Glelen's plans when the conductor returns from Europe. Gielen, who has been away from Cincinnati since May, Is scheduled to arrive here next Monday to prepare for the CSO's season-opening concert Sept. 23. "It's sort of a wait-and-find-out attitude until he gets back and we can talk to him," Ewell said. Gielen, who became the CSO's 10th music director with the start of the 1979-80 season, was reappointed to the post by the board in April, 1982. His current contract, which begins with the upcoming season, runs through May, 1986. The conductor also has served as music director of orchestras in Sweden, Belgium and the Netherlands, and has appeared as guest conductor with many major American orchestras. BY CAROL LAWSON "1963, N.Y. Times News Service '" Shortly after he made the film 'VT.he French Lieutenant's Woman," in which he played Meryl Streep's dashing romantic hero, Jeremy Irons was asked about his future career goals. Irqns replied that he wanted "for my name to be on every director's list" His wish has been granted, as far as Mike Nichols is concerned. Irons has been asked by Nichols to star in the Broadway production of Tom Stoppard's London come-dyjiit, "The Real Thing," and is in the final moments of contract negotiations. r"The Real Thing" is to open in early December at the Plymouth Theater, under Nichols's direction. Stoppard's most personal work to date, it concerns the amorous travails of a brilliant, arrogant playwright who "has all the answers" b)t doesn't know how to "write love." Nichols had hoped to sign Miss Streep for the co-starring role of an actress who is the playwright's mistress, but she has said no. The role has yet to be cast. PRODUCING "THE Real Thing" will be an unlikely consor-tium that includes Emanuel Azenberg, Nichols, the Nederland-er Organization and the Shubert Organization. The Nederlanders and the Shuberts joined forces to bring "Nicholas Nlckleby" to Broadway, but most of the time they prefer not to speak to each other. "I'm trying to put together peace," says Azenberg, who is conducting the negotiations for the Broadway production of "The Real Thing." "Everybody is involved," he adds, "because this is a serious play that is going to be expensive about $750,000. So, you have to put together some big players." BARGAIN NITESI SUN.
