  • Because in better health Temirkaniv is one of the greats and could still have so much to give us. Just think what the 90 year old Haitink has done this year – and Dohnanyi, 90, has bounced back too. Long may Yuri continue!

  • He’s still listed as conducting the opening season concert in St Petersburg two weeks from today – I have a ticket for that concert, so I hope he’ll be there.

  • Not to disparage Temirkanov in the least, but Ion Marin is a wonderful conductor.
    May YT regain his good health quickly, and may IM find great success as his replacement!
