I have posted the truth many times on this board, but usually get shot down. Maybe now after this ridiculous Boston affair more people will start examining the world of tuba playing more realistically.
I'm sure any one of the finalists would have been fantastic. But politics and power games would perpetuate the freakin' belief that "there's someone even better out there!" and kept people from making a real decision. Oh yeah, wait for the real conductor...so why did they have 2 auditions in the first place? And why couldn't Levine have sat in for a day or two to listen?
I can't wait to see what happens in SF.
