    Andris Nelsons and Barbara Hannigan also are quit "moveable" when conducting.

    The Boston Symphony Orchestra has always been a national treasure and Symphony Hall in Boston is acoustically one of the finest concert halls in the world. Add Legal Seafoods, the Red Sox, the Bruins, the Celtics and the Patriots and the temptation to move there is practically irresistible.
    Add the Museum of Fine Arts, Science Museum, colleges, universities/museums, USS Constitution, all the historical sites in and around Boston - yes very great city.

    At end of month 2/25 - I'll be going in to Boston to hear BSO play Shostakovich Sym #7....that should be a real trip!!

    we heard Sym #4 a couple years back - very good...fine performance...heard Mahler #6 recently as well. excellent. BSO is sounding very good at present...I think Levine got things going - out of the Ozawa doldrums....Nelsons seems to be a good fit

    I see Nelsons conduct all the time and he was nowhere near the level of Litton. I've never seen Barbara Hannigan though.

    I know we're talking about Boston here, but if I can squeak up and say, Good job, Nashville! The Nashville Symphony keeps winning awards because they keep recording things which haven't been recorded before.

    Okay. Carry on.
