Kalmar talks about conducting on new KBPS show

Starting this Sunday at 5 pm, Carlos Kalmar, Oregon Symphony's music director, will talk about conducting on a new radio show at KBPS (89.9 FM).

From the press release:

"Kalmar, who began studying at the Vienna Academy of Music at age 15, will draw from his life’s work to examine and discuss both the art and science of conducting a modern symphony orchestra.

After an initial episode that explores the birth of the “star conductor” late in the 19th century, each succeeding show will focus on one individual conductor among the pantheon of 20th-century greats, mixing anecdotes with historical stories and comments."
