Who better to conduct this important new work than Baldur Brönnimann, an internationally renowned maestro with a passion for contemporary music. Maestro Brönnimann also conducts symphonies by two of music’s great wits, Haydn and Shostakovich, and Ligeti’s lively, folk-music inspired Concert Românesc.
