Alan Gilbert has been appointed Music Director of the New York Freaking Philharmonic.

I’ve played for Alan and assisted him at the Cincinnati Symphony, and, most importantly, he seemed to dig my conducting at Aspen some years back (at least he took the time to tell me in detail how much he liked it, which was much appreciated)- obviously a man of taste and eriudition.
