Did Andrew Lloyd Webber go to Italy?

Oh ya, he OWNS the CalPhil.
Any real musician will notice that Vener is a hack within the first five minutes of rehearsal. To give him credit, he does know how to entertain the old ladies, he's so full of yada yada yada.
If I ever hear him yell at the orchestra again for not playing the way he wants (it's because he doesn't CONDUCT it the way he wants it), I'll scream!!!!!!!!!! I doubt anyone plays for him more than once, unless they're really desperate. I won't, because I'm not that desperate. THANK GOD!!!
Conducting 101: If you're not getting the sound you want, change your conducting! It means the musicians aren't getting it.
