He becomes the first native New Yorker in the position, ending years of speculation over the successor to current music director Lorin Maazel, who said in 2004 that he would leave after the 2008-09 season. "Every time he's come here, it's been better than the prior time," Zarin Mehta, the orchestra's president, told the New York Times. Gilbert's parents have both performed as violinists in the Philharmonic: Yoko Takebe, who is currently with the orchestra, and Michael Gilbert, who retired in 2001.
