Thomas Dausgaard is obviously a deep thinker and takes his music-making very seriously which, of course, led this to be a fascinating chat!
I discovered that his earliest musical experiences were not in the classical music world, we discussed how the long, slow romance approach to becoming a Music Director is one he prefers, and I hear how he got Norman Del Mar into trouble when he auditioned at the Royal College of Music!
