Has anyone noticed that the WSJ has become a very important news source for Jazz and Classical Music? How about that, Terry Teachout?

“…the League of American Orchestras established the biennial Bruno Walter National Conductor Preview, in which up-and-coming conductors can showcase their talents for an audience of orchestra search committees, managers and artistic administrators. The most recent one took place here last month, when the Louisiana Philharmonic Orchestra became the plaything of six talented newcomers, selected from a field of 150 applicants.

The lineup included Jerusalem-born Yaniv Dinur, a prize-winner in several international competitions; Christopher James Lees, who arrived with contemporary-music experience in Ohio and Boston; Brazilian-born Marcelo Lehninger, who just recently filled in for an ailing James Levine in Boston and garnered rave reviews; Sean Newhouse, an assistant conductor at the Boston Symphony Orchestra; Robert Treviño, named a “Rising Star” by Symphony Magazine; and Joseph Young, assistant conductor of the Phoenix Symphony.”
