    Bravo! Although sadly it means Europe will be seeing less of her.

    • Nils Angmar says:

      Why? Chicago‘s Music of the Baroque does not have as extensive a season like some big symphony orchestras. It appears that they present 8 or so programs per season, half of which are conducted by Glover. That comes to about 4 weeks out of the year she commits to that ensemble.

    Talking about long service. Hope you review Blomstedt’s new Mahler 9 with the Bamberg Symphony. It’s very good indeed!

  • Ormandy says:

    Music of the Baroque-a first-rate ensemble.

    Lucky Chicago!
