Canada's Julian Kuerti Saves the Day with Boston Symphony Orchestra

Torontos Julian Kuerti has just scored another triumph! Kuerti is in his second season as assistant conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra.

At very short notice, the young maestro (in his early 30s) has filled in for famed Russian conductor Gennady Rozhdestvensky, in a lengthy and demanding program. Lynn Harrell, one of the worlds leading cellists, was soloist.

The Boston Globe was truly impressed! See www.boston.com/ae/music/articles/2008/11/21/conductor_switch_handled_elegantly_by_bso/
