Pick Your Favorite Maestro for Midsummer Music
Wednesday, July 11, 2012
Next week, WQXR will bring you two broadcasts of the New York Philharmonic’s summer parks concerts, conducted by music director Alan Gilbert. Looking forward to these summery serenades, today’s Showdown featured Philharmonic performances conducted by the four most recent music directors: Zubin Mehta (1978-1991), Kurt Masur (1991-2002), Lorin Maazel (2002-2009) and Gilbert (2009-present).
We asked who you’d like to hear up on the podium and you told us Kurt Masur leading Brahms's Symphony No. 2.
