As violinists who went on to become conductors, Roberto González-Monjas and myself had an awful lot in common and, it seems, we also enjoyed discussing food as well!
We also discussed how scheduling can affect your health and lifestyle, I heard about the wonderful education project he co-founded in Columbia, and he told me what surprising full score he chose to spend 100 Euros on as a child!
