Episode 70 - Christian Baldini

July 25, 2021


I love Argentina and have visited many times and it was a pleasure to chat with my first Argentinian conductor on the podcast!

Christian Baldini and I discussed cover conducting and what that entails, I discovered which composer's full score was so large that the music stand had to be rebuilt, and, of course, the subject of England vs Argentina and football didn't take too long to come up!
