Episode 69 - Paul Daniel

July 18, 2021


Paul Daniel had been on my list of conductors I was desperate to chat with for a long time and what a joy it was to get to speak with him!

Despite some connection issues between the UK and France (and I do mean the internet!) I discovered how being a chorister at Coventry Cathedral really inspired him to conduct, I heard his very candid and honest reflections on the differences between Opera North and English National Opera, and I heard his wonderful impersonation of one of the conducting greats!
