Interesting to read the overrated/underrated composer thread. How about conductors?
IMHO and in no particular order,
Gustavo Dudamel -- if he were a balding 55 year old European nobody would care.
Ivan Fischer -- a balding 50-something year old European with tremendous grasp of repertoire and novel ideas every time he mounts the podium.
Herbert von Karajan -- perhaps not the younger Herb, but boy those digital-era recordings hardly raise an emotional ripple.
Yevgeny Mravinsky -- besides the stunning command of Russian repertoire, has anybody ever given his Beethoven and Bruckner their due?
I'm now prepared for my flaming.
