Kwamé Ryan was a joy to chat with - easy, open, and honest, exactly how I like an interview to go!
I discovered that Bartok's Duke Bluebeard's Castle seemed to appear at major moments of his career, that conducting one work in a birthday concert changed his life, and I heard about his very interesting system for marking dynamics in his scores and how technology sometimes plays a role in score learning!
