Simone Young Conducts Weber

Just a few days ago it was confirmed that Kent Nagano will become music director of the Hamburg State Opera, succeeding Simone Young in 2015. But who is Simone Young? In fact, she is a well-established and respected Australian-born conductor who has made her career mostly in Europe, and mostly in the opera house. She is a formidable musician and deserves to be heard more frequently in North America. In this video she leads a performance of the overture to Weber's opera Der Freischuetz with the NHK Symphony Orchestra inTokyo.
