The BBC NOW’s new great Dane talks to Alex Stevens

Conductor Thomas Søndergård conducts his first concert as principal conductor of the BBC National Orchestra of Wales on 12 October at St David’s Hall in Cardiff, in a programme starting with Magnus Lindberg’s Expo and concluding with Sibelius’ fifth symphony. He first conducted the orchestra as a late stand in for Thierry Fischer and embarks on a four-year contract as principal from this season. The former percussionist, who played timpani in the European Union Youth Orchestra and Royal Danish Orchestra, also starts a three-year term as principal guest conductor of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra from 2012-13.
