Two music projects are bringing Mexico and Germany together. Deutsche Welle commissioned a composition for Bonn’s Beethoven Fest, and the opening concert of Mexico’s Year of Germany.
"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.
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.
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.
Having conducted around 70 orchestras in Europe, the US, Japan and Brazil by age 36, de la Parra is an internationally known performer.
