    As a CD collector, English conductor Edward Gardner has largely fallen through the cracks. His ENO appointment and successful turnaround of were known. As well as having a baby with trumpeter Alison Balsom, then spliting up and moving in with tenor Toby Spence. But I'd not taken notice of his recordings, until recently reading reviews for a few of his Chandos product (Britten, Lutoslawski, Szymanowski). Has anyone here heard his recs.? If so, what's the verdict?

    Maybe the ideal term would be professionally banned. FYI the following links refer to the ban.

    I give him a Top 10 for living conductors, with appreciation for some of his Tchaikovsky, Shostakovich, Rachmaninov, Mahler, Dvorak, Sibelius.

    Do hear, if you haven't, his Rachaminov 'Isle of the Dead', 'Symphonic Dances', with St. Petersburg PO.

    Big news for Nezet-Seguin and Philadelphia Orchestra. I'm happy for the orchestra, but is the conductor good enough?

    I've heard him several times and can say, yes he is.

    The question should rather be; is he "Hard" enough?

    Legendary Swedish Choir conductor Eric Ericson passed away the other night, he was 94 YO.. He was a very appreciated Conducting and Choir teacher in Sweden and abroad (US & France) for almost every post WW II generation.

    He made some very fine Bach recordings as well as loads of contemporary Swedish music.

    I met him several times a a youth chorister, while he was only a second away from a joke to make you smile, he was still deadly serious and a master craftsman that could coax wonders out of a coarse amateur like I was then.

    He will be missed! RIP
