Thomas Dausgaard will be guest conducting the West Coast premiere of A Freak in Burbank, a romping homage to filmmaker Tim Burton by Swedish composer Albert Schnelzer.
Dausgaard, a conductor hailed for his “clarity, energy and momentum” (Classical Source) who “draws a spectrum of colors from the orchestra” (The New York Times), is renowned for his creativity and innovation in programming, the excitement of his live performances, and his extensive catalogue of critically-acclaimed recordings. Regularly appearing with many of the world’s leading orchestras, he began his North American career assisting Seiji Ozawa. In addition to his other orchestral positions, Dausgaard is honorary conductor of the Danish National Symphony Orchestra, having previously served as its principal conductor from 2004 to 2011.
