From our China correspondent, Rudolph Tang:
After conducting the China National Symphony Orchestra in Bruckner’s 8th Symphony at the National Centre for the Performing Arts in Beijing, the visiting maestro went out from his dressing room and greeted people and had photos with them and signed lots and lots of CDs.
Half an hour later when everyone had gone, he suddenly realized that he could not find his room. Because his name tag was printed in Chinese only. It says 弗洛.
Any idea who he was? (He didn’t).
Advice to conductors on China tour: remember the number on your door.
