As a critic for the French newspaper Le Monde observed, with Mexican conductor Alondra de la Parra classical music is entering the 21st century. Her popularity has been skyrocketing, in tune to her regular appearances with the Orchestre de Paris, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Rome´s Orchestra dell´Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and other prominent forces. She has enchanted audiences by a combination of elegance and vigour, as well as by her talent for sprucing up all-too-well known compositions with sparkling individuality. She is currently principal conductor of Australia´s Queensland Symphony Orchestra.
