In a post a few days ago I asked what those chaps in full evening dress were actually doing as they stood in front of an orchestra waving their arms about? Answers came there none from you lot, at least, nothing sensible, but today I have it on very good authority - 'The Speccie', than which, etc., etc., - that quite a few of them are given to waving other bits of their anatomies around! According to Mr. Norman Lebrecht, very many of them were, and probably still are, 'very naughty boys', or, to put it more accurately, they are disgusting, sexual ratbags!
You will have to read Mr. Lebrecht's original article to appreciate the full acidity of his disclosures but they appear to be an extension of his original book The Maestro Myth: Great Conductors in Pursuit of Power. In the meantime, just let me say that Mr. Harvey Weinstein was a mere apprentice compared to some of these guys!
