Music no second fiddle to the credit crisis
Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic Orchestra, is a unique participant to the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum dominated by movers and shakers of the business and political world.
Zander says the financial world could learn from how the conductor and the orchestra operate — the conductor, or the leader, does not play the music himself, and let the orchestra do the job.
“There is even more need for music in times of trouble,” he said before delivering a speech on an artist’s approach to managing complexity.
“People realise that we have something to offer.”
