Episode 29 – In Conversation with Richard Honner
We like to think of this as one of the jewels in the crown of Ballet Piano Podcast. It’s an In Conversation with legendary conductor and music director, Richard Honner.
With over fifty years of work in the theatre, we delve into Richard’s life and career from humble beginnings as an administrator at the Royal Opera House, to his work with Scottish Opera and Scottish Ballet, through to the inception of the ‘Piano for Dance’ course at The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.
You won’t fail to be taken over by Richard’s soothing tone, and warm charm and wit, and this wonderful episode is so insightful and funny, and you really get to learn in depth about a person who has lived and breathed ballet music, and shaped dance accompaniment.
