Thomas Hampson and the Taiwan Philharmonic Orchestra

Between 2008 and 2010, I regularly visited the sessions of Gunther Herbig whenever he was in town with the Taiwan Philharmonic, learning not only how to conduct core Germanic masterpieces but also how to rehearse effectively. I am just so excited to return to the gorgeous Chiang Kai Shek Memorial Hall and to work with this sterling orchestra!
With one of my favourite conductors and a trusted mentor, Ivan Fischer, with whom I have learnt not only about music but also creative and innovative artistic leadership in the 21st century
