  • “I am definitely a composer who conducts rather than a capital ‘C’ Conductor. But for me it is vitally important to remain a working, performing musician, and conducting is that outlet for me. I also find it is a great learning experience for composers, and that is still true, even at my age.”

    “I like to feel close to my colleagues who play. I think you write better if you are thinking about doing things yourself.”
