Diversity and Character

“Now” is always different, fluid, says conductor Bas Wiegers in his essay about diversity, change, and the power of live performances.

At the beginning of the 2018/19 season Bas Wiegers took over the position of Principal Guest Conductor of Klangforum Wien from Sylvain Cambreling. For the ensemble's 2018/19 program, the conductor contributed an essay entitled “Some thoughts about diversity and character,” a shortened version of which we reproduce here with kind permission of Klangforum Wien.
