Andris Nelsons Action Portrait Unveiled In Birmingham
“It’s exactly how I feel when I conduct”
A new portrait of Andris Nelsons, Music Director of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, has been unveiled at Symphony Hall. The watercolour, by Norman Perryman, was commissioned for the Symphony Hall Collection by Jayne Cadbury, funded by the George Cadbury Trust.
Viewing the portrait, the conductor said:
It’s an amazing piece of art and exactly how I feel when I conduct.
It is the 29th painting to join the Collection of Norman Perryman’s ‘action portraits’ of distinguished classical musicians which includes Jessye Norman, Yehudi Menuhin and Bernard Haitink as well as Andris Nelsons’s two immediate predecessors – Sir Simon Rattle and Sakari Oramo.
