Quote of the day

“Otto Klemperer, Sir Adrian Boult, Carlo Maria Giulini and Walter Legge made up the panel which awarded James Loughran the first prize of the televised final of the Philharmonia Conducting Competition in 1961. They seem as gods on Olympus in comparison to the preening nonentities who nowadays people TV adjudication panels.”


Re-blogged from a review of Loughran’s new recording of Bruckner 7 by Richard Osborne in the June 2008 Gramophone magazine.
