An Interview with Jesus Lopez Cobos
Mon, 16 Apr 2018

On March 2 of this year, the world lost a great conductor and Cincinnati lost a friend. Maestro Jesús López Cobos served as Music Director of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra from 1986–2001, bringing the orchestra into the world’s view as a top-tier group of musicians. In memory of Maestro López Cobos, I’ve pulled selections from an interview he gave with WGUC back in April of 2001, just before completing his tenure as Music Director here in Cincinnati. 
 Segment 1: Thoughts on leaving Cincinnati and the CSO  Segment 2: How orchestra members feel about his departure  Segment 3: Memories from his 15-year tenure
