  • Hilarious headline as always, Mr. Lebrecht. As one of these “desperate” conductors, it might be nice to see a little more support and appreciation from cynical boomers such as yourself and many readers of this cesspool of a website. If you want this special art form survive, you should be happy to see 600+ musicians still hoping to make a positive impact for the future, no matter how bleak it may look.

    • no need to surf the site if its a cesspool, I appreciate Mr Lebrecht’s dry with and sharing interesting current affairs in the music world
