Good news! George Henry Jackson, the young British conductor I had the honor of interviewing last year, had just won the 2014 Robert J Harth Conducting Prize at the Aspen Music festival. Congratulations, maestro!
(Here he is, conducting Mahler's 5th Symphony)
I'm afraid I didn't make it to the festival this year, but I'm elated to have a second chance when he comes back to the USA next summer. Yey!
