David Robertson

Today, one of my conductor-heroes, David Robertson, received an honorary doctorate at Westminster Choir College’s 2010 Commencement. He gave an excellent commencement address; his remarks were insightful and inspiring. As someone who’s passionate about contemporary classical music, I was particularly thrilled that Westminster acknowledged one of its leading lights with a degree.

Here’s a clip from his performance of the Carter Oboe Concerto at the 2008 Proms.
