Tim Page quoted in The New York Times

Tim Page, a professor of Musicology at USC Thornton, was quoted in the recent The New York Times article about Zubin Mehta passing the reigns of the Israel Philharmonic to Lahav Shani. Page said that Shani has his work cut out for him, but that the age of the 30-year-old maestro puts him in a position to succeed. “You can’t follow an established legend with another established legend. You don’t want ‘Zubin 2,'” he said. “I think the fact that Shani is a young, eager, compelling live performer who will bring something new and exciting and maybe win a new audience for the Israel Philharmonic — that’s a promising sign.”
