"Orchestras will need to adapt to survive," says John Sant'Ambrogio, recently retired after 46 years with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra (37 as Principal Cellist). The first interview reveals how and why he became a cellist, and talks about his heroes and mentors, including Bach, Pablo Casals, and Yo Yo Ma. The second interview delves into how orchestras will need to adapt to survive in the U.S. against the declining forces of cultural education, funding, presentation media, and composition.
