This was another chat I thoroughly enjoyed - but then I have always seemed to get along well with brass players?!
Fabien Gabel was great to chat with and I found out how much of an influence Pierre Boulez was on him, we discussed how to get over being nervous when working with and assisting conductors that you admire, and I discover that Fabien, like myself, is a Berlioz fan!
