Episode 49, Ben Goldberg

Ben Goldberg is a clarinetist of astounding virtuosity, depth and sensitivity.  His music has had a profound effect on me since first encountering it at age 19 and any chance to hear Ben play is a revelatory experience.  For this talk Ben and I go deep, real deep as we discuss the ongoing struggle inherent to playing clarinet, the weight of tradition, and living a balanced life.  I couldn't be more proud of how this podcast turned out and I hope that you all get as much out of listening to it as I did making it.
