John Williams to conduct the Cleveland Orchestra in April 2020

Recommended Posts

Historically he's always conducted every piece, but post-pacemaker he sometimes only does the second half, like the last couple times I saw him at Symphony Hall in Boston

You think he's going to conduct more pieces in Cleveland than he will at Tanglewood?

 

I haven't even thought about that. Although I'd say that if he's officially announced as the conductor, I'd assume he's at least doing half the concert, which would be more than in Tanglewood. And it very much looks like he's doing the full thing in Vienna, twice, so perhaps he's feeling up to it again for Cleveland as well. Anyway, my main point was that if he's officially listed as the conductor, that's more of a commitment than being host for Film Night.

Yep. Same thing when I saw him in Chicago.
