Two Brazilians contest vacant US podiummain
Of six conductors in the race to be music director of the New Mexico Philharmonic, the two standout names are Marcelo Lehninger and Roberto Minczuk.
Lehninger has only just been named music director in Grand Rapids, but clearly needs a second job.
As for Minczuk, he has just wound up his term at the Calgary Philharmonic and is no longer in command of the Orquestra Sinfônica Brasileira.
The other four candidates are Rune Bergmann, Oriol Sans, Grant Cooper and Fawzi Haimor.
