导赏本场音乐会的曲目反应出了伦纳德·斯拉特金一贯以来的理念:在可听性与探索性之间取得平衡。“回路”是伦纳德才华横溢的作曲家妻子辛迪·麦克蒂的作品,底特律交响乐团也刚刚录制过这部作品。贝多芬与门德尔松的作品体现出指挥家对经典曲目的热爱,而其中门氏的“宗教改革”似乎正象征着他在底特律的工作经历:作为底特律的文化象征以及旗舰乐团的掌舵人,他在这座城市的改革与复兴进程中起到了功不可没的作用。

伦纳德出生在一个显赫的音乐世家,他一生都致力于让交响乐的世界变得更加丰富多彩。我有幸与他共事长达30余年,相信你们将如我一样喜爱这位伟大的指挥家,以及他所带来的这场音乐会。(安妮·帕森斯,底特律交响乐团总会会长,执行总裁)
