Zubin: The Mayor of New York never came to my concertsmain
Maestro Mehta, in an 85th birthday interview in Florence:
I love this city, I am now part of the furniture. IntendentPereira knows all the singers in the world and luckily [the mayor, Dario] Nardella is in close contact with the theatre, not like Ed Koch in New York who in 11 years in office never came to one of my concerts with the New York Philharmonic. I told him, what kind of Jew are you that doesn’t like music?
