Interview with Nico Muhly and Bernard Clarke- now available online! 

Ahead of our Young Americans concert in November, Nico Muhly spoke to Bernard Clarke in Liberty Hall. In the interview Bernard explores Nico's musical experience, taste and compositional technique, with a few diversions to Bavarian pottery shops, masked balls and internet chatrooms.
