Women Conductors Are "Counter To Nature", Says (Another) Russian Maestro
Yuri Temirkanov: "As Marx said, in response to the question 'What's your favorite virtue in a woman?' - 'Weakness.' And this is correct. The important thing is, a woman should be beautiful, likable, attractive. Musicians will look at her and be distracted from the music! ... The essence of the conductor's profession is strength. The essence of a woman is weakness." The New Yorker 10/03/13
