    Congrats to Adrian. A fantastic musician and human being.

    Good luck. Anyone working in a Christian Thielemann house needs to bring a flame retardant suit and a parachute to work.

  • Thomas says:

    A Brit with a lovely South African accent! Great choice.

  • Eleanor Hope says:

    Excellent news! Many congratulations to Dresden for choosing such a first class person!
