No Asian maestros in classical music? Here’s a listNews
Slippedisc.com’s global readership has responded with stupefaction to yesterday’s New York Times feature, claiming that Asians are reduced to invisibility at the summits of classical music. One reader has posted this list of prominent Asian-American composers and conductors.
To which we could also add Lang Lang, Mitsuko Uchida, Yuja Wang, three of the biggest box-office draws at Carnegie Hall. And Elim Chan, one of Europe’s fast-rising conductors.
What do they use for editorial judgement these days at the NY Times’ arts section?
This is just embarrassing.
