Program notes

Michael Tilson Thomas, co-founder of the New World Symphony (NWS) and one of today's leading orchestral conductors, gives a series of three conducting and violin master classes to NWS alumni.

Here the maestro gives a conducting master class to Daniel Stewart. They work on Stravinsky’s The Firebird and pay particular attention to the ferocious tempo in the infernal dance of the last section.
