What Michael Tilson Thomas Could Do With Seven Veils

"'To me,' he said, 'my relationship with the San Francisco Symphony is the happiest it’s ever been.' The 'sense of adventure' continues with audiences and the musicians, he added. In Miami Beach, he is exhilarated by the new center and eager to explore the technological potential of the campus. Other than maintaining his appointment as principal guest conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra, he said, he accepts 'very few guest appearances with orchestras in Europe.' There are things he misses, like opera. 'Once in a while,' he said, 'I wonder what I could do with Salome.' But there are many conductors in opera houses who perform these works exceptionally well, he added. Increasingly, he focuses on what he is best suited for." [Source]
