    Since when have musician ever wanted to follow a conductor anyway? 😉

    • RW says:

      A decent orchestra will ignore the conductor as a matter of honour, if nothing else. Look at recent experience of John Eliot Gardiner with the Leipzig Gewandhaus…. at least according to the account in Private Eye…

  • Doug says:

    Now, where have I seen that before….

    All they need now is to bring Joe Robinson and Blair Tindall back for cameo appearances.

  • NYMike says:

    The inside cover two-page spread is even more fanciful, ostensibly part of a marketing strategy. The musicians are actual Phil members.
