From the New World
Recently appointed the music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Andris Nelsons is one of the most interesting upcoming conductors. A dynamic young Latvian conductor, he leads the Bavarian Radio Orchestra in a high-profile program featuring Ives, Adams, Stravinsky and Dvorak. Stuttgarter Zeitung raved, "One rarely experiences such a natural connection between conductor and orchestra [...] Andris Nelsons and the Bavarian Radio Orchestra are a sensation!" This concert cemented Nelsons' stated as the "real deal" among up-and-coming conductors.
