  • Agreed Andrew, ditto to your kudos to Dan. And while we’re at it, “Tokto” Philharmonic is mentioned in the maestro’s conductor credits, dare I ask location thereof?

  • How come the PC Schutzstaffel is not calling out the blatant discrimination of women this time? The Stuttgart Phil never ever has hired a woman as chief conductor yet. That makes them look worse than the Vienna Phil. We demand answers. But Stuttgart Phil, you got one thing right, you didn’t hire a non-dissident Russian at least, phew…
