Music Interview Eckart Preu: "The Stamford Symphony Is My Race Car!"

After 12 years as music director of the Stamford Symphony, Eckart Preu is moving on. In our conversation about his last concerts this weekend, April 8th and 9th, we talked about the pieces by Grieg and Sibelius on the program, and also how much he enjoyed conducting the orchestra, noting that their talent was like being able to drive a race car.

Born in Madison, Wisconsin, Kate Remington joined WSHU in December of 2000, and she's been WSHU's Music Director since 2002.
