Which Dutoit Will Philly Be Getting?

Peter Dobrin says that the success or failure of the Philadelphia Orchestra’s decision to appoint Charles Dutoit as interim chief conductor will depend on which Dutoit shows up for work. “Will it be the slightly jaded Dutoit, who in recent years sometimes turned in disengaged, glib interpretations? Or will it be the harder-working Dutoit, who carefully cultivates the orchestra’s sound and programs repertoire that is both meaningful and entertaining?”
