OK, this I really needed.
I shall be out in Los Angeles the week after next giving seven Why Mahler? talks in as many days during Gustavo Dudamel’s cycle with his two orchestras, the Simon Bolivar Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
I shall also be sending live reports from the cycle (please get in touch if you want to publish it in other languages).
But the prospect is still daunting: how are we to get through the intensity of it sane and alive?
