Frankly, at this point in his life, Leonard has nothing to prove. As a member of the National Symphony, I've seen him work with young conductors in our Conducting Institue and he's a wonderful teacher. He's always very constructive and gives the conducting students good, sound, useful advice for the real world. Indiana University is not only lucky to have him but the world of conducting pedagogy needs Leonard right now. Do we wonder why there are no great American conductors being brought forth? Leonard could turn that around and my guess is that he understands the significance of his decision.
