'Masters of the Baton' - Poznan Concert
April 14, 2011
Christopher recently returned from a week in Poland
where he conducted the Poznan Philharmonic Orchestra as part of their
'Masters of the Baton' concert series. On Friday 8 April eager
concert-goers at the Adam Mickiewicz University Concert Hall were
regaled with a diverse programme which set Stravinsky alongside
classical masterpieces by Haydn and Mozart.
Earlier that week Christopher took part in a question-and-answer session
which was attended by several hundred students from the Academy of
Music and the University. This spilled over into evening drinking and
talking in the local boutique brewery (see photos below). For
Christopher's Polish followers, extracts from the week are available
for listening on Radio Mercury.
