    It might be worth a try.

    Booo.

    He and I don't seem to be on the same page about hardly anything, but so what? It's just fun to get on here and jabber. Quite frankly, whenever I check in and see that there's a new wall of text for me to read about Hurwitz or Furtwängler or George Szell being a yutz, I think "today's going to be a good day."

    If you like Witz so much, wouldn't you want to use this thread to tell us of the things you like about him?

    No. I’m not going abuse the people on this blog with endless repetition. If I like Hurwitz’ videos I’ll just look at them. If I don’t I won’t look at his YouTube videos. It’s soo simple.

    If Hurwitz doesn’t like Norrington, he can just ignore him. Why does he have to endlessly refer to him as the world’s worst conductor?

    Because he's more afraid of the Furtwänglaryans than the Norringtonians.

    In fact we don't even have to look at a thread, never mind post.

    Perhaps it's the same motivation as it is for those who keep criticizing Hurwitz...

    Well sure. But the point is why is that same critic immune to criticism himself? There are some here who are going to exorbitant lengths to protect and inflate Hurwitz’s public image.

    And yeah, if he wasn’t such a *******, I wouldn’t be posting about him. But he keeps giving me fresh, new ammunition. That’s not my fault.

    I'd like Hurwitz to think a little more about his legacy, and perhaps manage his reputation better.

    He's built up a very large body of music commentary that I'm sure will be viewed for many decades to come, and even possibly centuries.

    But he can't resist being profoundly childish. When he doesn't like something, he can be mocking and uses inappropriate levity.

    I think he'll not be taken as seriously as he could or should be. I think that's a great shame because much of what he does is extremely valuable.

    I liked his latest video. I kind of wish he'd do a longer and freer form podcast thing because he's got a lot of fun stories about his life on the fringes of the classical music industry, and he's a good storyteller.
