The last American music directormain
When David Robertson quits St Louis, Leonard Slatkin leaves Detroit and Michael Tilson Thomas retires from San Francisco, only one of the top 20* US orchestras will have a native born and bred music director (pictured below).
Unfair? Unwise? Self-annihilating?
UPDATE: There’s also Robert Spano at Atlanta SO. Not sure if ASO ranks in top 20.
