Sir Antonio Pappano has signed a new deal at the Santa Cecilia orchestra, taking him to 2021.

He has been in charge in Rome since 2005.

He has also been music director at Covent Garden since 2002.

He doesn’t like change.

    Too bad his Verdi is so vacant and essentially inarticulate.

    1. Donal Byrne says:

      Shame Olassus – he speaks very highly of you …….

      1. Olassus says:

        I do like Pappano — in Ravel, Honegger, Mendelssohn, Puccini.

  2. Adrian Clark says:

    So, who is the one who is – not was – to be considered your preferred conductor of Verdi’s oeuvre?

  3. Cantantelirico says:

    Not a very flexible man in general.
