International maestro shuns black dress code

You will normally see Vasily Petrenko, music director of the Royal Liverpool Phil and the Oslo Phil, in black tails.

Not last night at the Royal Albert Hall, apparently.

He dressed like the young Jack Nicholson in a very bad film.

  • Eiji Oue blows all conductors out of the water with his personal dress code! He was a Bernstein student. He takes the Bernstein look and kicks it way up a notch!

  • While he might look cool for a younger audience, it is certainly a distraction for the orchestra to look into a moving ikebana and stay focused.

  • I don’t see this is even newsworthy. The orchestra were wearing sombreros, boas and wigs, after all. It was a charity performance for Make Some Noise.

  • What makes Vasily Petrenko an “international maestro” in contrast with the “German conductor”, “English boss” and “German stars” that we find in other headlines in this website?
