    "Musical America, whose annual awards are among the most prestigious in the industry, today announced Gustavo Dudamel as its Musician of the Year."

    Any thoughts on this? The article gives some reasons...

    With GD's emphasis on education (with fun), a most worthy recipient. Even for the past decade.

    Vladimir Jurowski talks about the changing role of the conductor. Interesting article.

    “Our profession reached its peak in the 1930s, with many outstanding conductors being active in that period. But it was also a time when strong totalitarian leaders came to power in different parts of the world, and there is an obvious correlation between the two processes: This is about people yearning for a strong hand.”

    Vlad is too young to give us a history lesson.

    HvK a composer? Took a shot at Dudamel?

    Lots of ideas, and leaps of logic.

    Rochester Philharmonic fires its conductor in mid-contract. Lawyers are busy. "He complained that 'the board chair and CEO have created a hostile work environment, treating me in a dismissive and demeaning manner .... thereby impairing my abilities to effectively carry out my duties as the music director.' "

    That kind of story's maybe a contributing factor to more women being appointed MD these days.

    Here's another...

    "Edo de Waart and Jorja Fleezanis, former stars of the Minnesota Orchestra, were in Minneapolis for a concert Saturday night at the University of Minnesota's Ted Mann Concert Hall. The concert, produced independently by orchestra musicians locked out since October in a contract dispute with management, will be repeated Sunday afternoon."
