Valery Gergiev has conducted a lot

Valery Gergiev has conducted a lot this year.  From last August to the end of this month, Gergiev has conducted 261 concerts.  That works out to essentially five concerts per week.  It’s hard to imagine being able to know your music well enough, nor does it seem wise to have so many performances (and thus so many rehearsals) while traveling that much.  But, that makes it all the more impressive that Gergiev could keep it up all year.  Kudos to him!
