The Pacific Symphony on Thursday released Romanian-born conductor Sergiu Commissiona from guest appearances with the orchestra in May, effectively ruling him out as a candidate in the orchestra's search for a new music director. Commissiona, a former music director of the New York City Opera, recently was named music director of the Vancouver Symphony. But there remained the possibility that he could accept both that position and, if offered it, the Pacific directorship.

Last July, when Christoph Eschenbach began his first season as the music director of the Ravinia Festival, the Chicago Symphony's summer home, he seemed like no ordinary conductor. Eschenbach--who returns tonight to the Los Angeles Philharmonic after an absence from Southern California of a dozen years--looked almost as if he had descended from another planet.

Carl St. Clair, an assistant conductor of the Boston Symphony, Monday was named music director of the Pacific Symphony. St. Clair--at 37, the youngest of eight announced candidates for the position--will assume his duties Oct. 1 and expects to spend about three months of next year in Orange County. He said Monday that although he will leave Boston, he will hold onto one of two other jobs he currently holds elsewhere around the country.
