Jurowski keeps his third job

  • Would be interesting journalism, if we were given some facts, like what his contract entails, how many programs he is doing there a season for instance.
    The insinuations – greedy conductor rakes in the money in multiple jobs done in haste, pushed by his agents – otherwise get tiring and pointless.

  • The Svetlanov orchestra (IIRC officially known as the State Academic Symphony Orchestra in the name of Svetlanov – GASO) probably plays about a dozen programs (all one-offs) in Moscow each year. I don’t know the extent of their touring. But chances are it doesn’t take a whole lot of his time. But it’s a fine orchestra – or was when I lived in Moscow in the mid-2000s.
