Personally, I was devastated when his mutinous orchestra drove Charles Dutoit from his podium. However, I was not privy to what persuaded the musicians to mutiny. Maestro Nagano is doing a great job.

One of the best maestro in the world. In a brand new building especially built for the orchestra. Bravo!

If you have a chance to visit Montreal during the season , the OSM is really worth the price of admission. Plus now, right out front they have a ticket discounter for last minute shows so you might get lucky.
