Where in the World is James Conlon?
James Conlon had a busy October conducting the San Francisco Symphony in two sets of concerts. On one of the programs was Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition. Here’s what the StarkInsider had to say:
Conlon more than delivered on the majesty and nobility of this piece, so much so that the audience fell over itself in gratitude afterwards at the transformative quality. This was not one of the de rigueur standing ovations that seem to be slowly creeping into the concert hall, after having made themselves at home in the theatre. This was a performance that left many in Davies with tears bucketing down their cheeks.

In early November James Conlon will conduct the LA Philharmonic in works by Britten, Prokofiev and Dvorák. For more information check out the LA Philharmonic’s website.
