TEA WITH NETTY #53: Conductor Constantin Trinks

Conductor Constantin Trinks, who makes his Festival debut conducting Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte with the OAE, joins Netty for tea and a chat. He discusses his musical influences and shows a special fondness for certain composers such as Wagner, Strauss, and especially Wagner!

Constantin Trinks expresses excitement about working with a period instrument orchestra for the first time. We learn about his gradual appreciation for early music following his initial affinity for later music and his passion for opera. We also get an insight into the conductor’s baton and the essential qualities of being a conductor. Catch Constantin and the OAE this summer in Glyndebourne!

Tea with Netty is the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment’s podcast hosted by viola player Annette Isserlis (Netty). Over a cuppa (or something a little stronger…), Netty chats with a variety of conductors, players and other guests as she ‘spills the tea’ on the side of classical music you don’t normally hear.
