Cellist Zoe Knighton

Australian cellist Zoe Knighton talks about the World Premiere work "Hidden Thoughts 2: Return to Sender" by Katy Abbott. The libretto was created from some of the 2,000 Australian letters sent to the asylum seekers held in Detention camps on the island of Nauru which were returned unopened. 
The quartet has built a huge following over the past 20 years. She mentions the value of artists in society which is something you need to remember as well. It's time for the world to change their view on Artists always being starving or doing gigs for free.  Find your own value in what you contribute to the world - have a good think about that - then the vibe you put out when you go talk to fellow artists or clients will change their view of you.

Concert Pianist Tony Lee

Second interview with Australian born Chinese pianist Tony Lee broadcast just before lockdown 29 February 2020 on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. Tony speaks about forever looking for new depth to music and how to connect to a commissioned work. This recording was part of a musical showcase, so a more relaxed interview compared to the previous breakfast interview we did.

Principal Flutist Martin Cohen

Breakfast radio interview with Australian Principal flutist Martin Cohen on Fine Music Sydney.  Martin helps organise the Woollahra Philharmonic - a very interesting orchestra with a mix of advanced students and retired professionals. He talks about recruiting conductors, older members mentoring younger ones and finding suitable repertoire. With performers not competing for jobs nor money, the friendly environment is just delightful. The musicians are devoted and great friends with each other. Their following is very solid.

Concertmaster Rachael Beesley

Breakfast radio interview with Australian Concertmaster Rachael Beesley talking about learning overseas, networking with other musicians and growing a new orchestra. She looked for a niche and altered the offering based on feedback from their audiences. You'll see I use the tag HIP with some interviews. This means "Historically Informed Performance" where the Performers aim for the sound and interpretation of what music might have sounded like at the time it was written.

Pianist Ming Xie

Radio interview with American-Chinese pianist Ming Xie talking about his career, learning at Julliard School in New York and travelling the world. I found him to be incredibly humble and focussed when I talked to him. A perfectionist and very clear in what he wanted to express despite the language barrier. As we played the first work of his performing, he was still critiquing himself and the fingers were moving. :-)
