  • Rather inappropriate for highly-paid maestros to mix with impoverished freelancers, flouting their wealth in a show of total unabashed arrogance. Shame.

    • The most illustrious conductor-bass player was Serge Koussevitzky, who had been principal of the Bolshoi and who wrote a concerto for bass that was recorded by Gary Karr.

    • No. 1. The same that was played at the Proms in 2015, before the Beethoven Triple Concerto. And the Boulez Memoriale was played at the Proms as well, in 2012, when Barenboim tried to pair the Beethoven symphonies with Boulez pieces.
