HarrisonParrott has signed its first conductor of 2019 (or maybe just of the week).

Its new addition is Aziz Shokhakimov, winner of the 2016 Salzburg Festival Nestlé Young Conductors Award.

He’s 31 and was previously with the Vienna agency Dr. Raab & Dr. Böhm.

It’s all about volume and turnover these days.

    No doubt talentedbut I can’t help thinking “what the ***** was this guy at 15-yo doing in front of a professional orchestra!”

  • Rgiarola says:

    I found this video of him conducting around 25 years old. Not bad at all this Glazunov.
