A couple of years ago or so, while guesting as a teacher at the Bard Summer Institute for Conductors, I met Jeremy D. Cuebas and Luke Lyons-Hunt, two wonderful musicians who were, back then, moving their first steps into the conducting world.
Well, it turned out that they also have a very entrepreneurial spirit and while pursuing their conducting endeavors they founded and currently maintain a podcast dedicated to conducting and conductors. It was a pleasure for me to be a guest on their program and talk about conducting, teaching, composing and, simply, music.
You can listen to it here along with many other interesting interviews.
