The Carnegie Hall president married Anya Deutsch yesterday to the music from Schindler’s List.

The wedding took place at Cipriani Wall Street and the ceremony was Jewish Orthodox.


  • John Rook says:

    I didn’t know Slipped Disc covered weddings involving women.

  • Anon says:

    Very strange, as the LSO have never been invited to perform at Carnegie since Sir Clive took over as director. It was the LSO who propelled him to these dizzy heights!

  • drummerman says:

    Shall we say “modern” Orthodox? The bride looks lovely but her gown is not exactly modest and I wonder if Cipriani provided kosher food? Nevertheless, mazel tov to them both!

  • MavisP says:

    Not strange at all as the LSO have always appeared at the Lincoln Centre. So why upset the apple cart?

  • Tony Osborne says:

    Mazal-Tov to them both! I had the pleasure of playing bass-continuo in RAM opera productions, alongside Clive as principal cello

  • Frank says:

    Curious choice of (holocaust) music. But congrats to the happy couple.

    • John Borstlap says:

      Some people choose music like ‘Nobody knows the trouble I’ve seen’ for such occasions, they like the tunes but forgot the worlds.

  • AJRussel says:

    No, I wasn’t there. Though I am called Joy. And the wedding was described somewhere as “orthodox”. So Jewish people do not marry on Shabbat. And as someone else has remarked, orthodox Jewish women have their arms covered normally – ‘specially at their weddings!

    • Anya says:

      1) it was not shabbat ( wedding occurred past sundown)
      2) covering or not covering— is not a law but falls within a tradition
      3) with respect to Jewish LAW the wedding was orthodox ( mikvah, ketubbah, , witnesses, it not being shabbat, etc)
