EPISODE DESCRIPTION

When I sat down to speak with Enrique Arturo Diemecke, I had some idea that the Long Beach Symphony Orchestra was in trouble. There had been rumors, and the occasional press release, hinting at real problems, and few solutions. Still, my intention was to speak with Maestro Diemecke about music.

Although incredibly active, leading 3 orchestras, and guest conducting around the world, his whole being radiated a deep and abiding love of music. As we talked about the opportunities and challenges of being a 21st Century conductor, I found myself amazed at his energy and enthusiasm, despite having flown in from Holland the day before.

In the conversation, he talks of his childhood, his many travels, and his love of Mahler. The recording is just a bit more than 45 minutes.

On Friday, Maestro Diemecke presents a lecture, "Beethoven and His Symphonies," part of the "Discovering Beethoven" lecture series. Tickets for the lecture are $25. On Saturday, Maestro Diemecke will conduct what may be the LBSO's final performance. The show's starring feature is Beethoven's 8th Symphony, described as "good-natured, cheery and humorous." It is book-ended by Handel's Royal Fireworks Music, and Antonin Dvorák's Symphony #9 or 'New World' Symphony. Ticket prices for the concert start at $18, quite affordable, actually.
