    We always hear about what instruments they studied, while in their classes, however,
    Maestro Gergiev knows how to lead an orchestra
    from excellent to just beyond superlative. He has vision for every masterpiece he conducts
    and the London Symphony orchestra is in wonderful hands. Remember it’s the artistic condition he leaves the orchestra in and I think it will be exceptional as the LSO has been in the past with eminent music directors. I wish him and the LSO
    all the best.
