The Most Difficult Challenge
RV: The most difficult thing was getting used to one another. We do more than 200 public performances per year and that means spending a whole lot of time together. We're talking about eight different personalities here. It took a good while before we learned how to best work with one another, to think like a family, to really click. There is no mystery in the fact that the degree of harmony among the personalities within the ensemble greatly impacts the quality of sound.
