As always, a very fine review. Two clarifications: 1) Emmanuelle Haim was not “on the podium” because there was no podium on stage for that program; 2) in 2015, when the orchestra of LA Phil quality sees pre-Mozart music on their stands and two harpsichords with a very conspicuous theorbo on stage, string players don’t need to be “asked to play without vibrato” – they do that naturally.
Dudamel’s LA days are numbered? The Financial Times says (May 13) that speculation on Simon Rattle’s replacement among Berlin zeitungen involves 3 names: Christian Thielemann, Andris Nelsons, and Gustavo Dudamel …
First: the big decision in Berlin will not be made by “zeitungen” but, fortunately for music, by the Philharmonikers themselves. Second: our days in this life are numbered too. As for Gustavo’s with the LA Phil, a simple calculation shows that there are at the very least about 2670 of them still left on his current contract.
