Sometimes you get to chat with someone who has so many fascinating stories to tell and tells them so brilliantly!
It was wonderful to chat with Matthias Bamert, a most charming man and also open, honest, and candid.
I found out how two "fairytale meetings" with two of the giants of conducting changed his life forever, we discussed recording Mozart and Korngold, and I find out how filming concerts can sometimes be just like filming a game of football?!
