      We are all so happy for the return of the great & the best conductor of the world! The orchestra & the Coro went to the Florence airport to welcome him last May. It was the first time that the majority of the orchestra & coro went to the airport to welcome a conductor! The concerts were GREAT & Zubin looks GREAT!!!!!

  • Norman Krieger says:

    Bless him !!!

  • Alan says:

    Good health to you, maestro.
    I heard you conduct the NYP in a program of Mozart 38 and Mahler 5 under less-than-ideal acoustic circumstances.
    Still loved the results!
    Long life to you!
