In case you hadn’t seen this last year.
Interaction close to zero. As laughable as Alondra de la Parra.
Indeed, DG has come a long way since Karajan (not). Shame on them.
The fact that you compared her to another woman, when you had so many other comparison points, is purely coincidental. You are not an old rancorous misogynist and angry patriarch. Oh no … Those don’t exist anymore, their phallic times are over.
No, he chose another conductor who has received an overdose of hype on this blog, who is also lacking the substance to justify such mania.
B…S… ! … and you seem to be saying it with a straight face.
A penis is no longer part of the job qualifications. Get over it and move on!
Nor a baton.
Mirga, come to save us and rid has of this old lascivious satyr. East of the Mississippi, north of the 38th parallel, west of the Appalachians.
Really dude? You’re still talking midwest whoop de do…
Really enjoyed this film.
one of a sequence of four, the third all about her family
Enjoyed this. She seemed to have a good rapport with some of the musicians here. Too bad their US tour was called off last October.
can you imagine karajan or reiner being so friendly
to the to the orchestra.
Certainly not. That’s why she’s a respected colleague and professional. Everyone is working towards a common goal of music-making. The era of conductors as dictators ended a half-century ago.
Great comment, but unfortunately way too optimistic. Look no further than Chicago to find a man who is the poster child (literally) for conductors as dictators.
Another Simon Rattle. Vanilla flavoured and insipid.
This woman is such an obvious marketing creation it’s amazing more people can’t see it.
Excessive marketing can eventually backfire. This seems to be the case with Mirga within the SD bubble.
Broke the cardinal rule. Speaks far too much. Forgets that many of the musicians (especially the older ones!) will have played this dozens of times, with much better conductors. Grandmother and sucking eggs springs to mind, but younger conductors never understand this. No respect, nor trust.
Oh, just like Kleiber then:
Absolutely missing the humour , lightness and panache of Prêtre Vienna 2010, and 50 years older. He never needed to,talk so much
Perhaps some orchestral musicians think they have nothing to learn? the conductor should just shut up, offer nothing new, and wave her stick? Watch Kleiber (in the link given above) using imagery to coax an orchestra into brilliance; or Harnoncourt (e.g. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4izV0CBHzQ); or Scherchen getting the most out of Wellington’s Victory (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFLdkwS0vHk). Abundant respect and trust!
Thank you! I did indeed miss this last year.
It’s a pleasure, also, to see the landscapes.
Another Simon Rattle, vanilla flavoured and insipid.
She will go far.
She’s wonderful!! Absolutely terrific.
One of the most overrated classical music person of today, along with Dudamel, Yusif Eyvazov and Lang Lang.
How overrated is Mirga in the real world?
She is 34, rising, getting plenty of hype (especially here), but her career is nothing like Dudamel’s in the last 10-15 years. Dudamel, who is only 5 years older, conducted both the Vienna and Berlin Philharmonic before turning 30. If Mirga had any confirmed high profile guest engagement, it would have dominated SlippedDisc headlines.
I am only discussing careers, not talent. If someone is overrated, it is reflected in their career.

In a perfect world…
A long time ago in a galaxy far far away…
