False Alarm, Sorta

The BSO announcement went out at some point yesterday - not to me (?!), but I saw reports elsewhere. And....it's another season of guest conductors! No new music director!

While one article I read said "a season with something for everyone," I'm scratching my head. An Asia tour led by Lorin Maazel? Yefim Bronfman plays the Beethoven piano concertos? (He has the same gig at NYPO.) All of the conductors and almost all of the non-vocal soloists are men (I saw Anne-Sophie Mutter, Alisa Weilerstein, and Yuja Wang). No music by women that I saw. The season schedule is here.

How much longer can this go on??
