Just two students in Salonen’s LA class, both Britishmain
Much fuss was made recently of Esa-Pekka’s engagement as a specialist teacher at LA’s Colburn School.
Some 115 student applications were received from around the world.
Just two were selected: Angus Webster and Ross Jamie Collins.
Both are British, both Helsinki winners of the Panula Prize established by Salonen’s teacher.
He may have known them before the process started.
