Conductors I'd Like to See and Hear in Atlanta

In no particular order....
Manfred Honeck (from Pittsburgh and Europe)
Gianandrea Noseda (from Pittsburgh and Europe- probably unlikely)
Jap Van Zweden (again)
Vasily Petrenko (again)
Michael Christie (with some good music the next time)
Marin Alsop (from Baltimore)
Franz Welser Most (from Cleveland- not likely)
Yannick Nezet-Seguin (from Philadelphia, but it won't happen)
Lorin Maazel (formerly of New York and Pittsburgh)
Gustavo Dudamel (from Los Angeles, but won't happen)
Osmo Vanska (from Minneapolis)
Christop Eschenbach (formerly of Philadelphia- want to see his temperament displayed)
Maris Jansons (the proclaimed "greatest conductor in the world", formerly of Pittsburgh and now in Europe only, a guaranteed "it won't happen.")
Valery Gergiev- (won't happen, but one of the best)
Sir Simon Rattle (won't ever happen)
Michael Tilson Thomas (likely will never happen)

Here's an interesting article concerning the relationship between conductors and orchestras:
