How much do I wish that Leon Botstein worked a few miles from me, or took the ASO on tour. He's a good, not great, conductor, but a great, great programmer.

Yes, I'm not convinced by Mr. Botstein so much as a conductor, but he's programmed some very interesting pieces over the years. He seems to have a good relationship with Telarc, I hope they release his performance of Schreker's Der Ferne Klang on CD.

I see Birtwistle's Madrigals on your playlist - I'm really hoping you liked the piece a lot more than I did, which would inspire me to give it another go. Let me know what you thought!
