    It is becoming somewhat of a trend among conductors not to wear white tie and tail and I can’t fault them for that. I actually wish the rest of the orchestra would follow this trend as well, like most baroque orchestras are these days.
    I was sitting pretty far away from the conductor and therefore cannot comment much either on his baton technique or whether “his downbeats were gracelessly ignored” but I found the end result quite successful anyway. It was definitely one of the better “Fantastique” I got to hear live, first movement included. The first part of the concert was way less interesting musically IMHO despite the great musicianship of Lombardo and the rest of the orchestra, and I am not blaming Joshua Weilerstein either…
