UK conductor: I won’t go on tour againmain
Asked about his lockdown year, the conductor and TV presenter Charles Hazlewood tells Fiona Maddocks:
In a way it’s been an amazing time for me. For 30 years I was basically touring the world most of the time, conducting different orchestras. For the first time, I wasn’t doing that. It was like a shedding of skins. Now I’ve realised I don’t want to go back to it. I’ve parted company with my agent and with the orchestras I was working with. All my energies now will go into the Paraorchestra.
(The Paraorchestra is the world’s first fully integrated orchestra of professional, disabled and non-disabled musicians.)
