Having met him once before, I knew Enrique Arturo Diemcke would be a very interesting person to interview and I was proved correct!
We discussed the differences between Anglo-Saxon and Latin people and orchestras, I discovered what the most important factor is when he considers which drink to choose in Question 10, and I hear which LP he and his siblings bought when they were young and why it wasn't the sort of quartet they were expecting!
The biography I mention in the outro can be found here - 'A Biography with music by Mahler' written by Jose Angel Leyva -https://www.amazon.co.uk/Enrique-Arturo-Diemecke-Biograf%C3%ADa-Spanish-ebook/dp/B08RRVW4ZY
