State of the World with Edo de Waart

From Upbeat, 1:00 pm on 16 August 2017

Edo de Waart, NZSO's MD is half way through his current programme this week with violinist Karen Gomyo, and next week taking on Berlioz' dramatic Damnation of Faust, a work he's excited to tackle because of its extreme risks. The 76 year old globe-trotting conductor shows no sign of slowing down but is more concerned with the state of the world than his personal achievements.
