Impressed with Foron on YouTube.
Not three men, Norman, three conductors. Let’s make sex less and less important, please.
Without sex we don’t have any conductor
This is scandalous!! Not one single female?? I don’t think I’m going to sleep very well tonight.
All three should have been women. Maestra Tár is turning in her grave………………………………………
We saw that sex shouldn’t be mentioned…..it’s just getting more and more bizarre….
DAMN RIGHT all 3 finalists should have been women! Even Vanessa Benelli Mosell is a better conductor than these 3 guys.
Good luck to all three MEN in the final. By the looks of the Jury there appear to be more non-men who have made the decision to choose three MEN as finalists, so it has balanced itself out. Maybe any failed women competitors can get a job with the BBC in its campaign to wreck classical music as revenge.
