MusicPlus: Mark Wigglesworth
“It is a waste of talent, a waste of humanity, to be so insecure that you have to have an extreme view”
Mark Wigglesworth is a world-renowned conductor, at home both in the opera house and the concert hall. His book The Silent Musician: Why Conducting Matters was published in October by Faber & Faber.
In this, the first in a new series of podcasts exploring the social responsibility and relevance of classical music, he speaks to Chris Gunness about Brexit, the challenges of a career in the music industry, and the qualities that make a good leader.
