  • Interesting – of course the late and much missed Chris Hogwood also had an appointment with the St Paul Chamber Orch in addition to his AAM work – there were a few (too few, actually) interesting recordings they made together

  • I thought he already had footholds in Seattle and Boston (Handel and Haydn Society). But you can never have too many feet in this business I suppose.

    • No formal position at Handel and Haydn, but annual appearances. I can only hope he will eventually succeed Harry Christophers. Under Christophers the H&H orchestra and chorus sound great in choral music.
