The Legacy of Ernest Fleischmann

Hosted by

As we reported yesterday, Ernest Fleischmann died on Sunday at the age of 85.  He retired 12 years ago, but for 30 years he controlled the Los Angeles Philharmonic, making it one of the top orchestras in the country with worldwide credibility. Mark Swed, music critic for the Los Angeles Times, offers an appreciation.
