    Yes, Dudamel, I think, will be one of the greats in time. He's still young, so he has plenty of time to show his stuff in the upcoming years.

    Agreed. He's the most influential popularizer of classical music, and afair there are no other conductors in this generation as famous as him. Now, I might by lynched for this, but I don't really regard Bernstein or Karajan as great conductors. I'm not saying they're bad, they're indeed very good, but I see their real achievement in popularizing classical music.

    in the choral light: Andre Thomas. Consider him the Karajan of the choral world.

    Default Alondra de la Parra

    MI, deep down in your heart you know the next Berstein or Karajan will be a women.

    Conductor Alondra de la Parra has gained widespread attention for her spellbinding and vibrant performances making her one of the most compelling conductors of her generation. She was recently hailed following a concert with the San Antonio Symphony as "uncommonly gifted … her blood and bone and breath are music. She is all music, from top to bottom and from inside out." Ms. de la Parra holds the distinction of being the first woman from Mexico to conduct in New York City, and most recently, has taken on the role of Cultural Ambassador for Mexican Tourism.

    ." The Dallas Morning News stated, "Her gestures were precise and strategic, and she clearly feels and expresses the music´s tensions and releases. She shapes phrases and builds one toward the next. These are qualities all too rare on today´s podiums."
    No, it's a Bb. It looks wrong and it sounds wrong, but it's right - Vaughan Williams.

    I thought of Rattle as well. Also, keep an eye on Carlos Kalmar. Not my favourite chief but not bad either.

    As for women, try Marin Alsop. She made quite an impression when attending her guest visits to the Oregon Symphony many years back and with the Eugene Symphony. Someone to watch.

    Bernstein and Karajan were only good with certain composers, like all conductors, but they, like you said, kept classical in the mainstream for many years.

    Alsop is fantastic. She will definitely be one to watch. Her Barber cycle on Naxos is superb.

    Dudamel is absolutely one to look out for.

    Paavo Jarvi, also; some of his recordings are dull (isn't that true of everybody?), but once one gets into his better composers, you're walking into some really great recordings.

    His recording of Sibelius' Kullervo is also amazing. Hair-raising in its intensity.

    Yes, I have his reading of "Kullervo" and it's quite good. I wouldn't rank it as high as I do Vanska's or Berglund's, but it's a lot better than Colin Davis' reading.

    I consider it to be very close to Vanska and Berglund--that last movement is outright the best I've ever heard; the rest doesn't quite rise up to that level, but almost does.
