A non-Sistema Venezuelan wields a London batonmain
Ilyich Rivas, 20, has just made a bit of a splash as the London Philharmonic’s youngest conductor in living memory (the LPO never were the most daring of London orchestras). Taught by his father, former conductor in Denver, Colorado, and mentored by Vladimir Jurowski, Ilyich made his official LPO debut on Friday night. Any good? Jessica Duchen thinks so.
