Daniele Gatti in conversation with Bruno Delepelaire (17 min.)
Daniele Gatti, who took over the direction of the Amsterdam Concertgebouw Orchestra in Amsterdam in the 2016/2017 season, enjoys success as both an opera and concert conductor. The music of the Austro-German tradition is as close to his heart as the repertoire of his Italian homeland. Plus, his tenure as chief conductor of the Orchestre National de France has given him a specific insight into French music, something he demonstrated at his guest appearances with the Berliner Philharmoniker in September 2016, presenting works by Dutilleux and Debussy. The rarely heard Symphony liturgique by the Swiss Arthur Honegger is also unmistakably in the French tradition. Here, Gatti talks to the young Bruno Delepelaire, first principal cellist of the Berliner Philharmoniker.
