the fans they want to express d.w. on facebook and twitter up to date and in touch follow us. they make a commitment they find solutions. they can start or. africa on the. stories of both people making a difference shaping their nation. and their continent. w.'s new multimedia series for africa. w dot com africa on the move. hijacking the news. where i come from the news is being hijacked journalism itself has become a scripted reality show it's not just good versus evil us versus them black and white. in countries like russia china turkey people are told it's that simple
and if you're a journalist there and you try to get beyond that you are facing scare tactics intimidation. and i wonder is that where we're headed as well. my responsibility as a journalist is to get beyond the smoking mirrors it's not just about being fair and balanced or being neutral it's about being true. when he was born golf and i work in the you know. my name is how long i live by the. i'm a mexican conductor. come with me and meet great musicians and friends from all over the world. so this
week it's with the bamberg symphony orchestra in germany and with a cellist french journalist. we're going to perform. and i'm really excited to talk to him after the concert because. conductors go one way and so is the other and off to the next plane to the next concert and this time i get to spend some time with and learn a little bit more about him so stay with us it's been really a pleasure to work with you to share the stage with you to serve music with us and of course you know when you know the soloist and you don't know the person you never know what it's going to be like on the stage but you never know if it's going to be good or bad except. you're thirty four years old and you've played with a lot of the symphony orchestra the very lives of everyone it works for the l.a. philharmonic the san francisco symphony or the vienna philharmonic or the concept
of elder than yourself with any skin and in japan so i think the difficult thing is to find for me is to find the balance between. keeping its joy that i have for music since four years old since i started this journey. and also this balance between perfection which doesn't exist in music we can always picture we can on different ways go right live to try different things take risks. and. we are so lucky. you have a son now i also kids and i think it's such a. such a miracle to be able to. to to talk and to speak with and
first for yourself to express ourselves and also to people and i think today today . more than ever we need the music and look at the world the world is going crazy everything politics or islam and we need the music we really need culture generally but what comes from this is music. and i understand that a lot of the times when i look into the news and see everything that's going on i think it's a great that's my job is to make people feel to make the. dream. have memory laugh cry and just that this is one of the most if not the most honest and
pure professional riches are given right. through this many times as we've said before we're on the road and we go give a concert and it looks very shiny and everyone's clapping and everyone's excited and it looks like you know we're having we're living the high life but the truth is we have to then carry your cello and myself in the back of my you know my friends my baby and stroll through this whole street and get to the hotel which is not usually the place the best place or the place you want to be and sometimes you don't have anyone to talk to and you sometimes you don't have anyone here to talk right now i get there. so anyway feel very lucky i'm very lucky to be able to speak with you and now and you have performed with thank you sir robert reich rao for.
conducting the bamberg symphonic here in germany one of germany's best orchestras without doubt and maybe one of the best in the world. this is actually not the first time i conduct them but i conducted them ten years ago on their very different circumstances i was one of many participants of the competition and i came here from mexico really frightened and next and so excited and nervous to conduct such an orchestra and to have the opportunity ten years later to come back as a guest conductor and a subscription concert with tchaikovsky's presumably is a great honor and i really can't wait to hear that sound that stayed in my ear all these years. part of the job i do that a lot i've been doing that so much too much. but it's part of the job because you need to. promote the music and get people to the concert today oh yes of course
because it's in germany and by additional focus a very important lead and not many people know me here i hear something hello hello hello. well i think for many decades most of our century this was always a profession of just men and i think with any leadership position that has been what history is it's behave like however i think nowadays it's a very different world and definitely in my generation i was able to develop very well and in a. very healthy way and so i second knocked or without any problem.
you just hit a really good point and it's the very first time that anybody says it in an interview and i'm so relieved because of course that's a huge part of connecting being able to multitask manage time manage people but also musically you need to be able to be in three places places at once you have to be in what just happened in what is happening in that very moment and foreseeing and preparing what's about to happen next and you have to be able to live in those three time zones at once. oh it's so special because i remember in my time in bamberg or ten years ago when i was. preparing so hard for this mahler competition and coming to this beautiful town and hearing this. incredible orchestra conducted by
the other conductors and then finally getting the chance to stand in front of the circus truck and i remember the emotion and excitement and desire i had to to get to work more with them and of course as competitions go you never know why or what what you did wrong or what they're looking for and as you say i didn't i didn't pass through the final round and. but it was so it was engraved in my ear in my memory the sound of this orchestra the beauty of the hall and the acoustics and i just really dreamt of maybe one day being able to work with them but honestly and i had said this to the orchestra yesterday i never thought it would be possible i thought oh well maybe in another lifetime but after ten years of working very hard i get this opportunity and i feel absolutely honored and and it's really strange i sort of wish that. my the lawn that out of ten years ago
would be with me and would just be standing right on the podium with me because of course we evolve and we mature and it's it feels different. this weekend in sweden with the sirius radio orchestra and extra that i really love working with and this makes all of this very special do i mean by the way the question from c n n who happened to have known each other since school and they started playing and they're very young together and are still together so when you hear performance really magical because you can never tell that there's two people playing they're completely in sync they're great brings together and it's really beautiful let's see what they have to tell us about how they started this tour and maybe i can get a little by little you with your little bridge or. my two solace for the concert tonight with a wonderful swedish radio orchestra and we're going to perform. concerto for to my
name as well for two percussionist but mostly mary my sinatra. you're. poor. how having this thing together with them playing together for twenty years sometimes when we had a break from school we went to practice room with us and we brought beds and we stayed there all day really yeah it's very clear that you're completely incinerated because when i'm listening to you both on stage i hear just one idea you never hear two two characters is always the same is beautiful. because of some material then there is some secret material secret in many
years if you want to say where lines actually through yes a mixture. and then come something something else something else i think times this yarn you see ok this is very special you are produced to make it clear what. the story my heart went out to do you say ok let's write and structures and pointers by actually just realize this with me i was right. i'm ready to take you but very slow please. ok really really. yes ok ready yes.
