Sounds like another great concert.

Also:

Maestro Leonard Slatkin was interviewed briefly last evening on PBS’s / Bloomberg TV’s ‘Charlie Rose Talk’ Show about his new book .“Conducting Business: Unveiling the Mystery About the Maestro” (Amadeus Press, 2012).

‘Charlie Rose’ 10/17/12 Program:

There are no frills; just a round oak table and intelligent discussion as Rose engages newsmakers, writers and artists, including an occasional show-business celebrity.
