Maestro Series: A Conversation with...Manfred Honeck, Music Director, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra

Maestro Honeck is becoming one of the most recognized conductors for his ability to energize his players and provide interpretations that shed new light on the standard repertory.  He has refined the Pittsburgh Symphony into what is described by critics as one of the best in the world.  His recordings with the PSO have generated acclaim, not only for him, but for the PSO.  He is described by some musicians as a "hands-on" conductor, who has strong ideas of how a work should be played, but he does so in a genial way.  AMC found him to be a true gentleman, full of wisdom, with just the right amount of European elegance.  Please enjoy the interview:
