    I remember Vizireanu when he was a finalist in a recent Cadaques conducting competition which was live streamed. He was amazing!

    Your headline makes it sound as though 3 people are contesting (as in ‘call into question’) the final of the Donatella Flick LSO Conducting Competition.

  • Nutters says:

    It is in fact Kerem Hasan not Keres. An error on the LSO twitter but would be good for you to correct it thanks Norman

  • Chris Stone says:

    All of the contestants, and finalists, are male…….
