The Latvian-born conductor has been named the 104th recipient of the Royal Philharmonic Society Gold Medal.

He will receive the medal at a London concert tomorrow night.

    Why, for some reason, is this major article not featured on Slipped Disc? You have made such a point in the past of reporting on sexism in classical music, especially sexism towards female conductors. Some might even say you have championed the “causer” of women conductors, but when Jansons says this… mention. Hmmmmm.
