The 97ᵗʰ season of the Latvian National Symphony Orchestra has begun with a long-awaited event: the appointment of Tarmo Peltokoski, 22-year-old Finnish talent, conductor, pianist, and Wagner enthusiast, as the Music and Artistic Director of the orchestra. Listeners can get a glimpse of the LNSO's future in Episode 33 of the orchestra's podcast, where Tarmo is interviewed by its host – musician and composer Edgars Cīrulis. The conversation deals with the YouTube generation and the role of Richard Wagner's opera Tristan und Isolde in the young conductor's life. It will also explore the notion of the ideal orchestra and whether a conductor really is a creative personality. We will also touch upon the work of Ralph Vaughan Williams, which will be a refreshing novelty for many Latvian audiences this year.
