    #8 - The luckiest man in the world

    There are a few people I can say for a fact that they influenced and challenged me to become a better musician. Gabor Takacs-Nagy is one of them! 
    After having a successful career as a violinist in the world renowned Takacs quartet, Gabor had to leave the violin because of physical issues in his hand. This led to a beautiful and fruitful career as a conductor.
    We talk about dealing with fears, team player vs solo person and how does he keep being so positive. 
     
    I would love to hear from you:
