Explore David Zinman Exclusive InterviewOn Tuesday, July 12, 2011, Classical Archives Artistic Director Nolan Gasser spoke with renowned American conductor David Zinman, since 1995 the director of the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra – where he has garnered high critical praise and impressive sales for his unique and often groundbreaking recordings of such standard repertoire as the symphonies of Schumann, Mahler, and especially Beethoven. With the latter recordings, for example, Zinman defied the early skeptics by demonstrating the validity of adopting Beethoven’s original metronome markings, offering a lighter approach to phrasing and pulse than is commonly heard with these works – in turn yielding fresh and infectious renderings that audience embraced in the millions. In this insightful and broad discussion, Maestro Zinman reviews his rewarding association with the Tonhalle Orchestra and the path that led to their impressive and innovative recordings. The two also discuss the Maestro’s evolving repertoire interests – following his earlier and celebrated association with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, some upcoming projects with the Tonhalle, his love of teaching, his sober views on the current state of American classical music, and much more.
