Episode 87 - Enrique Mazzola

November 21, 2021


Enrique Mazzola is a conductor who is now at the top of the operatic conducting world yet a humble and honest person to chat with - a lovely chat with a genuinely nice guy.

I discover how singing as a boy at La Scala changed his life, why we can thank the composer Hans Werner Henze for him having the skills to run a major opera house, and, since reading one particular newspaper review, what has now become his "trademark"?!
