  • I had the Honor to work with Maestro Kuusava performing in Madame Butterfly in Finland and without any doubts he is one of the best conductors from the young generation. Congratulations on his new achievement and good luck in Rijeka the European Capital of Culture in 2020

  • OMG, do you mean to say that men still get hired as conductors?!

    He must have had sex with someone (or everyone) on the search committee…
