Anne Manson conducts the Orquesta de Valencia
The American conductor leads the Extraordinary Concert of the Women’s Day of the Orchesta de Valencia.
On March 6, Anne Manson will conduct the Orquesta de Valencia in the Extraordinary Concert that the orchestra celebrates on the occasion of Women’s Day at the Teatre Musical of the Valencian capital. The program includes works by composers Ethel Smyth, Grazyma Bacewicz and Elizabeth Maconchy, as well as the Violin Concerto n. 5 by Mozart.
Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she began studying piano, viola and singing, Anne Manson has reached some historical milestones as a conductor: she was the first woman conducting at the Salzburg Festival, at the head of the Wiener Philharmoniker in a Boris Godunov production and is also one of only three women named Musical Director of the American Symphony Orchestra and the Kansas City Symphony.
His excellent reputation in the German repertoire, combined with a passionate defense of contemporary music, has led to invitations to conduct orchestras from around the world.
Anne Manson’s career is distinguished by its dynamism on the podium, stylistic versatility and its ability to move the audience to the composer’s inner world. Some critics have described Manson’s direction as «passionately intense» and «exciting,» with «a sense of spontaneity and naturalness.»
