Sir Charles Mackerras

Rhonagh O'Donnell, a producer at BBC Audio & Music Interactive, is responsible for the Maestrocam experiment. As you'll have read before, Maestrocam is a fascinating, educational project that points a camera at the conductor for the whole of a concert performance and provides an expert commentary - for fans and wannabe conductors and anyone interested in the job of the conductor.


Alyson Zuntz, a player in one of the participating orchestras took Rhonagh aside a couple of weeks ago and handed her a bundle of lovely drawings of various important conductors, including Sir Charles Mackerras who was in charge on that occasion. Sir Charles is the conductor in the picture at the top (click the picture for a bigger version). The small picture shows Vassily Sinaisky and if you click here you'll see half a dozen more of these lovely illustrations.
