Links: The Early Music Conductor Edition
A few early music links of note.
- John Eliot Gardiner was recently featured in an interview by Andrew Clark of the Financial Times. Gardiner has received attention elsewhere, too, as the title character in “John Eliot is Unwell, a short play based on true events.”
- William Christie received France’s highest cultural honor just in time to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Les Arts Florissants. As a result, he got some pretty fancy duds.
- Introducing: Marek Štryncl, cellist and director of the Czech baroque ensemble Musica Florea. Haven’t heard of him or the group? Well, they have a great website. You can also download their Czech Radio recording of J.S. Bach’s complete ‘Brandenburg’ Concertos for free.
