A long time fan of conductor John Eliot Gardiner, I wondered if there is some actual news on projects he is working on. A Google result leads, via via, to an interesting New York Times article from August 2000 with information on the Bach Pilgrimage Project. Of course that was ‘old’ news, but the article gives a good deal of information on the person behind.
At the Salzburger Festspiele, July and August 2001, he has conducted the Czech Philhamonic Orchestra in the opera Jenufa (by Janácek), so no doubt that will be a new CD to buy someday.
It is strange that Google doesn’t lead to a biography page, e.g. on the Monteverdi Choir site. I know there exist some other biographies, but I cannot find them now BTW, it seems that Google misses text accompanied with ‘s. So maybe I will send them a mail on this.
