The 2017–2018 Jacobs Masterworks series has been announced by the San Diego Symphony. What wasn’t announced was a new music director. Neither was there any indication of a time table for finding a new director.

In this episode we preview next year's season at sandiegosymphonh.org. All artists appearing this year are listed below.

So the 2017–2018 season will very much be like the 2016–2017 season, in that there will be several guest conductors. I like the guest conductor approach, but I’m also excited to find out who the next music director is going to be.

There are some interesting pieces on the schedule. The one I think I’m most looking forward to is Sibelius' Symphony No. 5. That piece of music always feels like a miracle with magnificent vistas opening up in the most unexpected of places.

The most intriguing piece of the season would have to be a violin concerto written by classical/jazz trumpeter Wynton Marsalis. Marsalis collaborated with violinist Nicola Benedetti in the composition of the piece. Benedetti will be performing the concerto here in San Diego.

There are three fifth symphonies next season. The Sibelius fifth, Prokofiev fifth, and Shostakovich fifth. While those three fifths are not directed related to each other, they do feel as though they are in the same vein of music.

In the video I go over the entire season and riff just a little bit about each piece.

I’ve listed all the artist for next season in order of appearance:

Edo de Waart

Jean-Yves Thibaudet

Cristian Macelaru

Nicola Benedetti

Johannes Debus

Markus Stenz

Jessica Rivera

Jennifer Johnson Cano

Colin Blazer

Adam Lau

David Danzmayr

Rose Lombardo

Julie Phillips

Rafael Payare

Steven Schick

Jader Bignamini

Aiyun Huang

Pinchas Zukerman

Sameer Patel

Anne Akiko Meyers

Jeff Thayer

Andrei Ionita

Jeffrey Kahane

Jahja Ling

Fabien Gabel

Kelley O'Conor

Martin Helmchen

Looking at conductors only and unless I am mistaken, it will be the (at least) 3rd season in a row for Edo de Waart, Cristian Macelaru and David Danzmayr, the 2nd season for Markus Stenz , Fabien Gabel and Johannes Debus and the first season for Rafael Payare, Jader Bignamini and maybe Jeffrey Kahane. Given how long in advance you have sometimes to book these conductors, it might not necessarily be foolproof, but the first three names are starting to look more and more like a short list for the position of music director with the second three names still as serious challengers in case the Symphony wants to take its time.
