    How about Carl Schuricht?
    “Then he will also say to those on the left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels!'" Matthew 25:41 (Christian Standard Bible)

    Yes, You're right, that's basically what I meant. Still, it seems to me that there is less talk about him now than about many conductors of his generation.

    could be....Kertesz just died way too young...I think there can be no doubt that he would have had a major career, and would have held down some major posts had he lived longer.

    He was chief conductor of the LSO and had a contract with Decca so he did already have a major career. John Culshaw called his death 'a ridiculous drowning accident.'

    yes, Kertesz had a major career already, we can only imagine how it would have developed had he lived longer. major talent, for sure.

    Kertész. A gem that one day will shine among the greatest conductors.

    I completely agree! Dohnányi was the conductor I imprinted as I became familiar with the Beethoven and Brahms symphonies. His Shostakovich 10 was my first exposure to that work... So I may be biased. Over the years, I have delighted seeing him often in Cleveland, at Tanglewood, and recently in London with the Philharmonia. He’s been my favorite for so long.

    So, to me, he is indeed underrated. The reviews of his work have generally been excellent, but many others dismiss critics’ reviews, so I guess relying on that is difficult, as well. Sales have always been low. Is that an indicator of anything other than poor marketing? Anyway, IMHO, definitely underrated! Totally agree!
