This is a bit of an abbreviated interview, according to the article, and is a translation. It’s quite interesting to read: the implication is that the orchestra could be a bit of a challenge sometimes!

It’s like an absolutely gigantic string quartet, with all the arguments and verbal violence and frustrations of a string quartet. And to really learn something – they take about as long as a string quartet. But then when it’s learned, then it is really there.
