The fast rising Jakub Hrusa has told the St Louis Symphony he can’t make a week of concerts next month because he needs to be around for the birth of his second child.
That’s what we like to hear from a thoroughly modern maestro.
But Jakub might be cutting it fine. The following week he’s due to conduct the Los Angeles Phil and he intends to make those dates. Let’s hope the baby comes in time.
