Briskin, sensing the lad’s inherent conducting ability and musical understanding, guided him to Leningrad to study with the brilliant conducting teacher Ilya Musin. Gergiev enrolled in Leningrad Conservatory at an especially propitious time. “This was when I was 19 or 20,” he said. “It helped me a lot, that, when I was studying there, Shostakovich was still alive, and most of my teachers, who were between 70 and 75 years old, knew him. Many had also known Prokofiev. They were directly connected to the events that had been happening 50 years before.”.

The comeback of the great rocker Ted Leo, a famed Andy Wahol-era performance artist and a new look at Stephen Sondheim top my Weekend Top 10 for Nov. 2-5 (and beyond). 1 Ted Leo: The Washington, D.C., singer-songwriter-guitarist has put out some of the best indie hard rock music to be had since the 1990s, lacing his sound with punk, pop, folk, liberal politics, existential yearning and rollicking guitar runs. He should be a lot more famous than he is, though his diehard fans probably prefer it that way. Following a long stretch in which Leo dealt with health and personal issues — including his wife’s miscarriage — and took control of his music distribution, the rocker is back with a crowd-funded, hard-hitting, life-affirming blast of an album titled “The Hanged Man.” He brings his band The Pharmacists to Bimbo’s 365 Club in San Francisco Nov. 4.
