What does a star conductor do during her free time? Which musicians does she meet when she is traveling? What does she do behind the scenes? Alondra de la Parra on her new project with Deutsche Welle, "Musica Maestra."
On June 20, the British maestro conducts his last symphony concert as the Berlin Philharmonic's music director. The collaboration between orchestra and conductor ends as it began: with Mahler's Sixth Symphony.
Having conducted around 70 orchestras in Europe, the US, Japan and Brazil by age 36, de la Parra is an internationally known performer.
As a sought-after guest conductor and head of the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Brisbane, Australia, the Mexican-American maestra Alondra de la Parra knows that music is about communication - on every level.
Star conductor Alondra de la Parra is both reporter and protagonist in DW's unique new series "Musica Maestra." She will be appearing in 26 web-videos and six television shows.
