  • Agreed. Typical of the gossip-column nature of this site. How about an artistic prediction of his work with the orchestra, and what the orchestra is known for? He has a far broader grasp of repertoire than Glass alone. In one season with the SPCO, he paired music by John Cage with Haydn, on every concert. He is fascinating.
