From 2st to 6th of September 2019

The opportunity to develop the art of being both musician and conductor with the orchestra is a unique artistic experience. Having direct contact with the musicians in the orchestra, working simultaneously on questions of style, articulation and balance, learning the gestures… so many elements needed to be combined to instill a concerto with the true spirit of chamber music.
