  • I’ve great admiration for Slatkin’s conducting ability. Frequently inspired on a good night. Best Tchaikovsky Pathetique I ever heard with him & the Philharmonia some years ago.

    But he’s not renowned for his sense of humour (just ask the BBC Symphony) so its good to see him letting his hair down & taking it like a man.

    • After having worked with him on many occasions for over three decades, my opinion of him as a conductor is still the same: knowledgeable and competent, but rarely inspired and even rarer if ever inspiring. However, he has always been and remains a good storyteller with a fine sense of humor.
