James Gaffigan on the NACOcast

James Gaffigan, former Associate Conductor of the SF Symphony, is on the NACOcast podcast this week. He is interviewed with fellow conductor Andrew Grams, & they both get some interesting questions about professional etiquette. Potentially touchy topics include talking to audiences, inadequate sopranos, orchestra relations & ugly contemporary pieces. I thought "Missa Solemnis or Verdi Requiem?" was a good question too. Mr. Gaffigan is a charming character, as evinced already in his interview last year with SFMike.
