Chatting with Hannu Lintu turns out to be great fun and what a charming man he is. We discussed personal repertoire choices, especially "awkward" works, I found out what it is was like to be taught by the "two popes" of conducting, Jorma Panula & Ilya Musin, and I discover which job would be difficult for him to attempt due to his "temper"!
