On the New Yorker website, an interview with Esa-Pekka Salonen, on the occasion of his appointment as the next music director of the San Francisco Symphony.
I first interviewed Salonen in 1994, for the New York Times. I spoke to him at length for my 2007 profile of him and the L.A. Phil, and in 2013 we conversed about his collaborations with Patrice Chéreau. There is no easier or more pleasurable interview in the business; he speaks better English than I do.
