Cuban flutist extraordinaire—and old friend—Ernesto Fernández joins us on the show. He talks about growing up in Cuba and the Dominican Republic, and how a general fearlessness and sacrifices on his and his family's part have led him to a burgeoning career in the United States. He talks about his early successes, studying hard at university, teaching Sir James Galway Latin jazz, teaching, and of course his new album "Pa'lante" ("Onward!"—Ernesto's favourite catchphrase), which, in the days since recording this episode, has been nominated for a Latin GRAMMY Award.

We are joined by cellist Ruth Hallows talking about her work as a performer and educator. She introduces her blog, From a Cellist's Perspective, where she discusses issues from mental health for musicians and myths about the classical music world to practical things like auditions and advice for recent music college graduates. She also talks about her time teaching in Hong Kong and how it has informed the way she approaches work—both performing and teaching—today. Along the way, she tells us how her experience as an Events Officer in the RCM Students' Union helped inform her creative juices during the COVID-19 lockdown.For more about Ruth, including the blog From a Cellist's Perspective, visit her website here.
