Feminine music 2

Ewa Strusinska has been appointed assistant conductor of orchestra of the moment, the Hallé in Manchester. Ms Strusińska (above) was born in Poland and studied at the Frederic Chopin Music Academy in Warsaw. She has built her reputation in the mainstream repertoire but has also conducted music by Brett Dean, Einojuhani Rautavaara and Edward Gregson. Because Ms Strusińska is female we are, thankfully, spared her age in the press coverage. But, to maintain equality of the sexes, I can reveal she was born in the year Benjamin Britten died.
