    She’ll have to swot-up her Sibelius.

    No objections against a new Wood Nymph.

    Good for Anja, but a German trained conductor going to Finland is a bit like carrying coals to Newcastle.

  • Karl says:

    So she’ll be a Slobo sub then? I can’t pronounce or even spell Slobodeniouk.

    Very nice! Can’t wait to hear her with either (or any other) orchestra – colleagues in the know tell me she is musical, intelligent with interesting ideas and a solid technique.

    Congrats to Lahti, she’s a great conductor!
