Tom Service meets Nathalie Stutzmann, the celebrated contralto who is now forging a parallel career as a conductor. Mentored by Seiji Ozawa and Sir Simon Rattle, Stutzmann created her own chamber orchestra Orfeo 55 in 2009.

She talks frankly about the attitude in the past to female conductors and about how her singing informs her conducting.
