Episode 89 - John Adams

December 5, 2021


What a pleasure and a joy it was to chat with one of my favourite composers! John Adams was so nice to chat with and such a lovely warm and open person.

I discovered that his first job was a rather surprising one, what extremely unusual item he always takes with him when he travels abroad, and how a Hamburg taxi driver brought him crashing down to earth!
