  • I like her a lot. I listened her in dallas a few years ago. Then Holland and Berlin. I am glad for her, however, here we go again. The same pattern, maestros traveling to the maximum, a few days here, then over there, too much. Stay in one place at least 6 solid moths then take a few invitations.

    • Having two positions that are not far geographically can be a first step toward stability and focus. The question in my mind is how much guest conducting will be added on top of Berlin and Hilversum.

  • Congrats…and she’s also chief conductor with the Dutch Radio PhO. I wish her all the best, good health, patience and stamina.
