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.

Singer Sandie White

Long standing Australian Jazz singer Sandie White interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. Sandie tells of her many years of travel singing from South Africa to Europe and gives some tips for new freelancers in building their career.  Note that she talks about "sitting in" o jobs as a form of audition which the Jazz musicians are so much better at encouraging. She moved from one country to the next, building a freelance career from scratch each time.
Very interesting conversation! I wish we'd had more time.

Artistic Director Violinist Madeleine Easton

Australian Artistic Director violinist Madeleine Easton interview broadcast on Fine Music 102.5FM Sydney Australia. Madeleine talks about her work in London with some of the great orchestras there, her connection to Sir John Eliot Gardiner and her founding the Bach Akademie Australia. You'll find a more recent interview when I first started DrummRoll with some wonderful career building tips and hints.  She's so enthusiastic, it's no surprise she was able to go overseas and build a freelance career from scratch.

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. :-)
