Yes, Valery Gergiev is conquering the Great White North.  After winning the Gold in the Conducting an Orchestra from a Very Remote Location  event at the Olympics (he was in Vancouver, the orchestra was in St. Petersburg), he is taking the Mariinsky band on a tour including Ottowa and Montreal.  And they love him. 

He's also been uncharacteristically loquacious.  Here are two very good interviews, one in which he actually visits the possibility of....gasp!.....delegating responsibiity at the Mariinsky.....

and one in which he divulges his secret of time management: don't open your own e-mail (why didn't I think of that?)

After a Russian show inToronto ( Rachmaninoff, Liadov) on St. Patrick's day, it's off to California for shows in San Diego, San Francisco, & Orange County with a similar menu (Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich).
