Why conductors are polygamous

From Upbeat, 1:20 pm on 21 July 2017

Conductors are polygamous, according to Englishman Alexander Shelley, who is about to begin his fourth tour with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra. This time he’s conducting Spanish classical guitarist soloist Pablo Sainz Villegas. He discusses Bartok, growing up in a musical family and how conducting the NZSO stands out for him as a very rewarding experience musically.
