Nathalie Stutzmann

Contralto Nathalie Stutzmann chats with Classical WETA's Nicole Lacroix about her conducting and singing careers.  She discusses the challenges of breaking through gender barriers as a conductor; why conductors are born, not made; and why Mahler's Rückert-Lieder are "a moment of peace" in a noisy world.  Ms. Stutzmann joins the National Symphony Orchestra and conductor Christoph Eschenbach this week (June 9-11) at the Kennedy Center.  Also on the program, Anton Bruckner's Symphony No.4, the "Romantic."
