Who will be leading the Berlin Philharmonic? (I hope for Paavo Järvi, but don’t really believe in it)

Not sure I have very much to add to this brilliant article by Alex Ross in the New Yorker, except that I wish it would be Paavo Järvi, who is not even in the most often quoted lists of high-likelihood candidates, or if I have to chose a name from this “inner circle”, I’d take Nelsons.

    Yes, would be very nice if Paavo could be elected to chief conductor since he’s been pretty well known for his strong personality and his own decisions about how the particular performance should to be. He also is not scared to record controversial materials like his last Shostakovich Cantatas on Erato taking the music above all the political or any other aspects of human being. Music is just above all of that.
