Roger Norrington: I am not that interestingNews
BR- KLASSIK: That is very symbolic when you end with this symphony, which is nicknamed “The Clock”. Is there a time in your career that you particularly remember?
Sir Roger Norrington : A lot! “Night of the Proms” of course, with three million listeners. It was so fantastic in Stuttgart, the orchestra played so wonderfully. We had a wonderful 15 years together, very, very friendly and open. And I am very grateful. I’ve had a wonderful 60 years on the podium and now it’s time to retire a bit and listen to some CD’s.
BR- KLASSIK: What are you going to do with the time if you no longer perform?
Sir Roger Norrington : Read! We live wonderfully in the country here. We can see the English Channel from home and Dartmoor National Park. And write a little too.
BR- KLASSIK: your memoirs? Or what can we look forward to?
Sir Roger Norrington : For my family only. No, I am not that interesting.
