Just watched this week's NYC Arts-this interview : Paula Zahn speaks with Clive Gillinson, Executive and Artistic Director of Carnegie Hall, about the upcoming city-wide "Migrations" festival and the role of the concert hall in the 21st century. Regards, Len

Gillinson has to be the most important arts administrator in the musical world today - not only for keeping his organizations on a sound footing, in the community and not least financially, but for making education a key element in the organizations' relationship with the public and the future. He emerged from the cello section of the London Symphony Orchestra to save it from a financial crisis and help make it the finest and most exciting orchestra in London, then extended its reach to education, not only of children but their teachers. Carnegie Hall was likewise in shallow water when they had the vision to bring Gillinson in from London; he survived a witless challenge from a powerful member of the board who was also a major donor, and has gone from strength to strength. This interview is typical Gillinson, and is worth seeing by all of us.

I agree! Like Isaac Stern and Wynton Marsalis, Gillinson is truly important in the music world. Carnegie Hall is by far New York's premiere presenter of events from around the world, which alone makes him worth listening to. Incidentally, Paula Zahn is also a professional cellist, which gives her deeper insight in her conversation.
