The Complete Conductor

By Jay Nordlinger [NY Sun, 30 September 2005]

Sir Colin Davis has blown into town for a three-concert series with the London Symphony Orchestra, of which he is principal conductor. The concerts take place under the aegis of Great Performers at Lincoln Center. Indeed, Wednesday's concert - offering the Verdi Requiem - opened the Great Performers season. Tonight, Sir Colin et al. will present an all-Sibelius program. And on Sunday afternoon, they will play two British symphonies: one by Vaughan Williams, the other by Walton. Sir Colin has long been a Sibelius specialist, and no one is better in the British repertory. But then, Sir Colin is a complete conductor, weak in nothing.
