Alexander Shelley Conducts Sibelius

The National Arts Centre Orchestra has a new conductor. Pinchas Zukerman is stepping down and Alexander Shelley is taking over. Shelley is not a household name but he has built a respectable career, mostly in Germany. He was born in London in 1979 and takes the reins of the NACO starting in September, 2015.

In this video Shelley conducts Gustavo Dudamel's Simon Bolivar Orchestra in Venezuela, in an excerpt from the Symphony No. 2 by Sibelius.
