  • Caravaggio says:

    Conductor now and former concert pianist. Sending good wishes and a speedy recovery.

  • Pedro says:

    I was at the 1984 concert in which Frantz played the Schumann with LB. He replaced András Schiff at the last minute. It would have been a much better performance but Lenny conducted superbly. I still remember the celli sound in the second movement.

  • Richard Craig says:

    R worked with Karajan, hope he. Recovers soon
