Marin Alsop Talks

American violinist and conductor Marin Alsop (b 1956) has blazed a trail as one of the world’s pioneering female conductors. 

In 2013 Ms Alsop made history as the first woman to conduct the Last Night of the Proms in London’s Royal Albert Hall, the world’s largest classical music festival with an audience of over 40 million. This year she has been invited back to close the festival on September 12th.

In this interview with The Economist, Marin Alsop talks about women in leadership, preparing for the Proms and the art of conducting.
