Wrapping up his tenure as principal conductor
and artistic advisor for the West Australian
Symphony Orchestra in late 2013, Paul Daniel
reflects on his time in Perth and working alongside
the talented musicians of WASO.
You have incredibly extensive experience as
a conductor; can you tell us some of your
highlights from working with WASO?
I’m proud of the great variety we have explored
in our programs: from the very beginnings of
orchestral music in the sixteenth century to
music written especially for WASO this year,
it has all made for very lively concerts!
You’ve said that Perth has been like
a second home for you. What is it you
love about spending time here?
I love the way the city buzzes. Whether it’s
music, theatre, eating, drinking, discussing politics,
brewing coffee; everything is done with a passion!
What in your mind makes a great conductor?
On one hand, the job is to help to project the
huge potential and endless creative possibilities
of a hundred musical personalities, and on the
other, to limit all those possibilities to one single
musical decision moment by moment – and
striving for that balance is what makes it
such an impossibly thrilling job.
Paul Daniel will conduct his final performances with
Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and at Symphony in the City,
as well as his farewell gala, Verdi’s Requiem.
JEAN-YVES THIBAUDET & THE WEST
AUSTRALIAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
Jean-Yves Thibaudet is one of the world’s greatest pianists (he entered the Lyons
Conservatory in France at age five), and a particular favourite with Perth audiences.
He’s set to enchant us once again with his incredibly dexterous talent and natural
charisma when he performs alongside WASO and their principal conductor, Paul
Daniel. Thibaudet pays tribute to the great jazz-inspired American composer
George Gershwin in a performance that also features the Symphonie Fantastique
by French composer Hector Berlioz. This orchestral concert will ignite the imagination
as it weaves a musical story of unrequited love. Perth Concert Hall, Nov 29-30.
