Leonard Slatkin has conducted his final concerts as music director of the Orchestre National de Lyon (no connection to the city’s unhappy opera house).
On the farewell tour, he conducted the orchestra in Ravenna, Italy, where the town’s resident maestro kept him up at dinner past two in the morning…. as he does.
Here’s a happy pic of the Slatkins and the Mutis with a certain violinist squashed between.

He has much to say about the recent Cliburn contest.
