From a reader: "I've learn each one of many interviews, and that i can say that, for my part, this can be fine quality stuff. in fact, there are lots of interviews being provided, either on-line and in print, with opera singers, conductors, composers,... yet those interviews are whilst insightful, profound and unique, a unprecedented combination."
