“What makes Andris Nelsons so special as a conductor?” We spoke to violinist Ana Luisa Wolkwein and tubist Ole Heiland, two young musicians who as part of their fellowship with the Mendelssohn Academy are on tour with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in Boston this week.

As with any big soloist, Augustin has brought a crowd with him.
