During his busy week in Toronto, Maestro Dausgaard has agreed to share his view on Bruckner especially Symphony No. 6, Mahler's symphonies, his conducting career and other late Romantic and Scandinavian composers he is actively championing with various orchestras in the world.

Toronto audience should be familiar with Maestro Dausgaard, he is a frequent guest conductor with the Toronto Symphony in challenging program, last season he led the orchestra in a full cycle of Sibelius symphonies to critical acclaim. He is currently music director of Danish National Symphony Orchestra and Swedish Chamber Orchestra as well as guest conductor with prominent orchestras in Europe and North America.

The format of this meeting would be an interview with Maestro Dausgaard moderated by representatives of the Toronto Mahler Society, therefore we ask you to submit questions that you would like to ask for his view on various music subjects, from his musical training, conducting career, his Sibelius symphony cycle with TSO last season, his view on Bruckner & Mahler symphonies, to promoting Scandinavian music. We are going to collect the questions and organize them so that the interview will cover a broad range of areas.
