Conductor Repertoire Report- Leonard Slatkin, May 08-April 09

We’re going to be continuing our discussion of conductor repertoire in an upcoming post. To that end, we’ll be posting repertoire reports for individual conductors in separate blogs posts. Below is Leonard Slatkin’s repertoire from May 08-April 09 (a sampling chosen for highly structured research-oriented reasons, er, it was what we found most easily on his website).

We’re also inviting conductors to submit their own repertoire reports or for readers to assemble repertoire reports on other artists using their websites. Hopefully, it might lead to some interesting discussions. Send any lists to and we’ll post ’em here.
