Screw-maker starts a symphony orchestra

Reinhold Würth, 81, is known in Germany as King of the Screws.

He makes small bits of joinery on a massive scale. He’s also an epic art collector with an estimated private worth of $10.4 billion.

What to do with all those screws? Herr Würth and his wife Carmen are starting an orchestra in Baden-Württemberg.

Kent Nagano will conduct the opening concert, it was announced today.
