British conductor Nicholas Carthy is the fourth finalist to take the stage with the RCO.  He studied at the Guidhall School of Music in London as well as the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria and spent a period of time as assistant to famed conductor Daniel Barenboim.  He is currently Professor of Music and Opera Music Director at the University of Colorado and visiting tutor at the Royal Northern College of Music in his native Great Britain.

Maestro Carthy continues the Beethoven connection throughout the season with a wonderful solo aria for soprano and orchestra.  It is paired on the first half with a light and moving concert piece by Robert Schumann.  The second half of the performance brings two exciting works with the rhythms of dance throughout.  Living American composer Gabriela Lena Frank's Leyendas brings the sounds of the Andes, and Zoltan Kodaly's brilliant Dances of Galanta closes the program.
