On set report: Tugan Sokhiev at L'Orchestre National du Capitole de Toulouse

Tugan Sokhiev is music director at this high-profile French orchestra - that's when he's not being music director at the Bolshoi Opera. 

I was privileged to sit in on rehearsals and on a performance of Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony in the Halle Aux Grains. These photos are the first I've taken of a conductor at work and it was quite a thrill to be in among the orchestra while he drilled them into shape. 

Sokhiev will be making his London Symphony Orchestra debut later in the Spring.
