Episode 58 - Hugh Wolff

May 2, 2021


Sometimes when I chat with a conductor, we just get along straight away and this interview was definitely one of those!

Hugh Wolff is wonderful to chat with, intelligent, warm, and funny. I discovered what he had learned from Rostropovich and how he had benefitted from his "generosity", why he was locked in a room in Paris for eight hours, and we discover that we have very different views on the sound of a "babbling brook"!
