Join Alondra de la Parra on her musical travels around the world. In Paris she hangs out with Ensemble Recoveco of Colombia and Venezuela, and in Budapest she meets Hungarian violinist Barnabás Kelemen.
A new documentary on DW follows the charismatic young Mexican maestra over 14 months as she conducts on three continents. As she tells DW, the sheer fact that she is a female conductor is still fascinating to many.
"La Maestra: Alondra de la Parra" provides a dynamic and personal portrait of a Mexican maestra in the midst of a career upswing. Her kinetic energy and charisma seem like a force of nature.
Alondra de la Parra is one of the new stars of classical music. She has conducted more than 100 orchestras in 20 countries, breaking the glass ceiling in a male-dominated profession.
This orchestra has given a platform to talented young musicians for half a century now, and under conductors like Karajan, Petrenko and Rattle, most of them have gone on to professional careers in music.
