What is the role of the conductor?: With Dwight-Pile Gray, UK-Based Conductor

What is the role of the conductor?: I interview UK-based conductor Dwight-Pile Gray this week as we cover a range of topics such as the history of the role of the conductor; how a conductor approaches and prepares for a rehearsal, as well as the question: is there a place for modern values to be expressed in classical music? Dwight also shares some of his favorite compositions by nationalist composer Antonin Dvorak.
