From Brno to London: Jakub Hrůša

Last week, Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša was appointed as one of two new Principal Guest Conductors of the Philharmonia Orchestra from the 2017/18 season. Before the announcement, Jakub talked to us about his experience working with the orchestra thus far and about Smetana’s Má vlast which he conducts next season.
Esa-Pekka Salonen
Esa-Pekka Salonen has a restless innovation that marks him as one of the most important artists in classical music. Salonen is the Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor of the Philharmonia Orchestra and Conductor Laureate for the Los Angeles Philharmonic, where he was Music Director from 1992 until 2009.
