After Glyndebourne

We gave a week of “Albert Herring” interspersed with “The Rape of Lucretia” at Covent Garden Opera House. In one of the intervals, Ernest Ansermet, the famous conductor leaned over the orchestra pit rail and asked if I would be interested in joining his orchestra, the “Suisse  Romande”, based in Geneva, Switzerland  I met him in his hotel later and Ben urged me to take it as I could play the winter seasons in Geneva and then the summer seasons with him, but my wife was adamant; she wouldn’t move to Geneva.
