    I heard Salonen perform live in LA early last year and it was electric. I find his recordings, however, less so.

    Smile Gustavo Dudamel

    I clicked on the link so I could say that I think Gustavo Dudamel is one of the most influential conductors of today. As I scrolled down the page, I was delighted to see that others had said the same thing. He is a person I would love to have the honour of meeting in person. Humble and absolutely passionate about the youth he leads and about music. I just love him.

    He is in my top 10 for this generation. Others are

    Rattle
    James Levine(Actually he was between the Karajan/Bernstein Generation, and this one)
    Barenboim
    Tilson Thomas
    Walter Weller

    I really don't listen to new conductor's, but I should. I didn't list Abbado, or Boulez, because I think they are closer to Karajan and Bernstein's generation than most.

    I like Dudamel a lot--he does the most thrilling Ginastera "Estancia" I've heard in ages. But I was not thinking of him in terms of late-Romantic until I heard his Mahler First. It absolutely knocked me out! I can't wait to hear what he's going to be like as he matures--he's already wonderful, IMO.

    Read the opening question again. It simply asked "Who do you think will be the next...." The original question did not qualify the question in any way. It is an open-ended question. It did not state that these men were great conductors or that they were enfluential conductors or anything else...." There is room to respond to the question after interpreting it in various ways. I think the implication is likely who will be as influential in this generation as these two conductors - Von Karjan and Bernstein. Again, my choice is Dudamel as his orchestral "team" definitely appeals to today's youth in a way that no other conductor I am aware of is reaching them. His humility, his energy and passion and his concept that is just one member of the orchestral team (listen to his interviews and this comes through loudly and clearly). He does not set himself up on a pedestal above his fellow musicians, yet he is clearly their leader.

    It's too early to tell yet who among the many young conductors starting to make international careers today will have the biggest careers, but there is absolutely no lack great talent among them.
    The young French Canadian Yannick Nezet-Seguin recently succeeded Valery Gergiev at the Rotterdam Philharmonic and has just made a well-received debut at the Met with its new production of Carmen. He really seems about to take off.
    Robin Ticciati is only 26 and is the son of Italian and English parents. He is already starting to make a name for himself.
    Vladimir Jurowski is currently music director of the London Philharmonic and the Glyndebourne opera. He has appeared at the Met and with the Philadelphia orchestra, and could possibly succeed Christoph Eschenbach as music director of the Philadelphia orchestra.
    Christian Thielemann, 50 ,will soon become music director of the prestigious Dresden State orchestra and Dresden State opera, having recently stepped down from the Munich Philharmonic because of a dispute with theorchestra's management. He has been described as the
    Furtwangler of our time.
    The veteran Lorin Maazel, who has just turned 80, succeeds him in Munich. He's the energizer bunny of classical music !

    Default Yannick Nézet-Séguin

    I couldn't agree more. Other than the Philly announcement of his appointment I'd never heard of him. Then this past Saturday he made his debut with the Berlin Phil with Messiane, Prokofiev, and Berlioz. You can watch it on the Berlin Phil's Digital Concert Hall for a modest charge.

    I then lstened to Youtube clips and other online samples of his recordings, mainly the last three Bruckner symphonies with the Orchestre Métropolitain du Grand Montréal.

    I like his approach to Bruckner which seems to be not to get in a hurry with the tempo.

    Arkivemusic.com has his recordings.


    cliip-- The young French Canadian Yannick Nezet-Seguin recently succeeded Valery Gergiev at the Rotterdam Philharmonic and has just made a well-received debut at the Met with its new production of Carmen. He really seems about to take off.

    Absolutely! Him, along with Gustav Dudamel (mentioned numerous times). The young Russian conductors (Vasily Petrenko, Kirill Karabits), just to name a few.

    OK, I'm biased, but Alexander Mickelthwate (Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra). The man has such enthusiasm and infectious energy, that he could sell you ice in Antarctica.

    There are some youtube clips with Yannick Nezet-Saguin.

    Here is a five minute film made in honor of his receiving a Canadian music award.

    I heard this concert of Kullervo on Medici.tv and was bored to tears and I LIKE this piece.

    I also heard either Mahler or Bruckner, again bored to tears.

    Is there better music you might think he could conduct?

    I think Pietari Inkinen is really a wonderful conductor who is just into his 30s. He's already released three wonderful Sibelius CDs on Naxos (one of which starts a symphony cycle), and he's also recorded several other CDs including Rautavaara's 8th symphony, a recent EMI release of Wagner excerpts for tenor, some violin concerti... I tend to think he's one of the better young conductors out there, and I definitely think he has much more potential than does Dudamel these days.
