Considered one of Spain’s finest conductors, as well as having garnered an impressive reputation internationally, Guillermo García Calvo believes that music is an “elixir imbued with magical powers”, that most of us have yet to fully discover. A passionate advocate of the role of music in education, he also draws parallels between conducting an orchestra and managing a business, highlighting the importance of working in as many countries as possible to create an international profile. At the same time, he recognizes that a conductor without an orchestra “is nothing” and should always remember the debt of gratitude to the musicians who play “to move the listener and transport them to another dimension.”
