Age

Alex Ross shows the ages of the former New York Philharmonic conductors and asks “How young is Alan Gilbert?”

Well, according to the list, he fits in just fine.

BUT … I don’t compare to other conductors. As I told some of the bloggers at last night’s symphony event, “It’s all about the oboe,” or, to be more frank, it’s all about this oboist. ;-)

Okay, I’m just kidding. Sort of. But I do compare ages of others to my own age. If the number is lower, the person is young. If it’s close to my age, it’s middle age. And no one seems to be old any more, unless they are about 100. Funny how that has changed, eh?

Pictures of last night should come up later today; moving to WordPress means I have to learn how to do this stuff all over again. Meanwhile, back to the races.

Really. The Tour de France is on and there are only 2.7 miles to go. Gotta watch. (Yeah, this musician is up far too early. Not sure why. It just happens.)
