INBOX : On my iPod

Peter Walls, CEO New Zealand Symphony Orchestra: I play my iPod when I’m walking to work, or back uphill to Kelburn at night. Thanks to the music I hardly notice all the steps! Here’s what I’m listening to:
Simon O’Neill “Father and Son” (NZSO and Pietari Inkinen) I feel very proud of it in million different ways. I’ve known Simon since student days, and it’s great to see him doing so well.
Rossini, Barber of Seville complete (James Levine, LSO) I’ve been asked to conduct it soon.
Mahler 5 (Simon Rattle and the Berlin Phil) This is coming up on the NZSO’s next tour. I I love the playing on this one, which is one of Freddy Kempf’s earliest CDs.
Assimil 4 I listen to this when there’s loud music in the gym! Basically it’s endless dialogues in increasingly difficult German. I’m brushing up on my German before the NZSO tour in November.
