Creative Conduct: An Interview with Bard President Leon Botstein

"It's not only the devil that's in the details; all of beauty is in the details," says President Leon Botstein in this interview with the Aesthete. President Botstein describes his creative process, and the great rewards of conducting and teaching. "The thing that I'm proudest of," he tells the Aesthete, "is any direct impact one might have had on another individual's life." He also talks about his experience of personal loss, and the importance of living life to the fullest.
