It’s the less starry ones who will suffere. Here‘s the conductors’ roster, on the last day of Columbia. It had 111 names in Wilford’s heyday.
Star soloists and personalities include Alma Deutscher, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Khatia Buniatishvili, Gidon Kremer, Maurizio Pollini and Denis Matsuev. Full list here.
Singers number Jamie Barton, Kathleen Battle, Mariusz Kwiecien, J’Nai Bridges and more.
