Important Things We Learned

Among the hubub of news about Esa-Pekka Salonen signing on, it's important to note that we've learned some important and interesting things about SFS CEO Mark Hanson. He has kept a pretty low profile since his arrival in 2017; we now know that:
  • He can negotiate a new contract with the musicians with no fuss at all.
  • He can hire Esa-Pekka Salonen. Many people were involved; he was on the team and surely one of the leaders. So he can work well with a team.
  • He will support a wide range of forward-looking initiatives under Salonen.
