  • I hope he gets well very soon. I was fortunate to see him conduct at the Proms last year. It was a terrific concert.

  • A really interesting and undervalued conductor, IMHO. Let’s hope that he comes through his cancer.

  • For his Boston Symphony debut, he did a semi-staged Porgy and Bess at Tanglewood on just 2 rehearsals. It was fabulous. A brilliant intellect, engaging conversationalist, and a wonderful personality. Fingers crossed for a full recovery!

  • We have enjoyed his recent Christmas concerts with the Philadelphia Orchestra, he is an audience favorite. A stout warrior in his current battle, we pray for successful treatment and his renewed good health.

  • He is truly beloved here in LA for his many wonderful concerts over many summers at the Hollywood Bowl…a uniquely gifted and witty raconteur combined with superb musicianship …we have been rooting for him as a member of our civic family!

  • I have had the complete pleasure of playing under this Maestro several times. He is a true gentleman and is beloved by many, many orchestral musicians. I am sending him my most positive thoughts and wishes.

  • Sorry to hear he is ailing, I wish him good fortune. We really enjoyed a wonderful Elgar Second with the Melbourne SO a few years ago, as part of their Geelong series.
