Hot new appointment at the RSNO, conductor Elim Chan

New Principal Guest Conductor of the RSNO Elim Chan talks to Jamie about her plans.

Newly appointed Principal Guest Conductor Elim Chan talks to Jamie about the moment she wanted to become a conductor, the moment she saved the day with the RSNO and her plans for the orchestra. Jamie's album of the week features virtuoso violinist Arabella Steinbacher playing Strauss, and he has music from little-known composer Edna Bentz Woods.
