The Silent Musician – why conducting matters.
In conversation with Jonathan Dove
A conductor is one of classical music's most recognisable figures. Rarely, though, does such a well-known profession attract so many questions. The Silent Musician is for all who wonder what conductors actually do, and why they matter. In conversation with Guest Festival Director Jonathan Dove, celebrated conductor Mark Wigglesworth will explore conductors' relationships with musicians, music, and the public and personal responsibilities they face, talking about features of a conductor's art: precision, charisma, intuition, diplomacy and passion.
