I am still very proud of that concert. In America, the (musicians’) connection with the conductor is as with management — it becomes political. You cannot conduct properly in this environment. I hate this enemy situation between management and orchestra members.


What is a career, actually? Nobody can destroy my career. Only I can destroy my career, if I am a bad conductor. I’ve gone to lesser known orchestras in Scotland and Sweden, Detroit, but I have enjoyed the places I’ve been, and had success. I like the close community relations, and to solve problems.
