About this playlist
It's always difficult for me to choose my favourite music because there are so many pieces that I personally enjoy listening to and conducting. This is a very personal selection of music that either I have recorded myself recently, or compositions that made a huge impact on me as a conductor. Together with the label Chandos we have created a series 'Voices from the East' some of which you can see on my playlist. Most of the composers that I champion come from Eastern Europe as I do myself, and by exploring those composers deeper one can discover a lot of surprises and see how much of the classical tradition was actually influenced by the East.
