Lionel Bringuier was such a nice guy to chat with - full of life and a really positive outlook on life and music-making!
We had a discussion about which is harder to conduct, The Rite of Spring or Petrouchka, we discussed if conductors can be likened to tennis players, and I discovered why he was not allowed to celebrate with everyone else when he was at a dinner to announce his appointment at the Los Angeles Philharmonic!
