one of the busiest conductors in the business
Conductor Valery Gergiev is a hot commodity. He's one of the busiest conductors around, always in high demand. With four regular conducting gigs, he's been called the "hardest working man in show biz." Today we'll hear him conduct the London Symphony Orchestra in music from Rachmaninoff's Second Symphony from London's Barbican Hall.
