About Andrew Manze:
In 2006, Manze became the chief conductor of the Helsingborg Symphony Orchestra. He is a gifted speaker whose work as a performer and commentator has earned prestige the world over. As a conductor he is a dynamic leader, directing orchestras around the globe in baroque, classical, and modern repertoires. As a violinist he plays with what the Boston Globe calls "sizzling virtuosity," skill, "so intense that it almost leaves a whiff of hellish sulfur hanging in the air." For more information visit
