Alice Farnham and I seemed to have quite a few things in common and I really enjoyed chatting with her - we had a very warm and open conversation together.
She had so many fond memories of studying with the great Ilya Musin, we had a fascinating discussion about teaching young women conducting, and I discovered what her multi-instrumental "party trick" used to be!
This is the link I mentioned on the podcast episode of Musin conducting Strauss' Don Juan - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i-NDx2cOYMc
