At the end of the hall, whistles, Calls, Fußgetrampel raging. No doubt, the audience in the sold-out Berlin concert house loves Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra: freedom, with the help of which you moved your left Hand, your program with works by Ravel, Korngold and Milhaud, the cool control of the radio Symphony orchestra of Berlin in Größtformation, the smart hip movements when Conducting, reminiscent of the Art of Leonard Bernstein, the mandatory Smile on your bow.
