    Just reading what is coming next season to Carnegie Hall.
    Part of which is:
    Carnegie disclosed the festival in announcing its programming for next season, which will include a focus on Benjamin Britten, whose 100th birthday is being celebrated in 2013; all of the Sibelius symphonies, played by the Minnesota Orchestra and its music director, Osmo Vanska; and three concerts by Valery Gergiev, leading his Mariinsky Orchestra in honor of his 60th birthday.

    Mr. Gillinson said he was unconcerned about the effects of a labor dispute on the Minnesota Orchestra; that struggle has kept it silent so far this season.

    “I don’t think anybody’s going to let their playing go,” he said. “Osmo Vanska will be absolutely clear. This is a huge thing for them as well.”

    Let’s hope that the MO is able to play.

  2. Oh dea! The Boheme shows a just why opera should be heard and not seen. Two middle aged people imitating young lovers.

  3. OK, so it’s Renata’s birthday, but Jussi never fails to impress. Name a better tenor!
