There are a few people I can say for a fact that they influenced and challenged me to become a better musician. Gabor Takacs-Nagy is one of them!  After having a successful career as a violinist in the world renowned Takacs quartet, Gabor had to leave the violin because of physical issues in his hand. This led to a beautiful and fruitful career as a conductor. We talk about dealing with fears, team player vs solo person and how does he keep being so positive.    I would love to hear from you: Facbook: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100072552783685 instagram: https://www.instagram.com/asaf_maoz/?hl=en email me: asafpodcast@gmail.com   music in the episode is performed by the Verbier festival chamber orchestra and is courtesy of the Verbier Festival.

How difficult is it to tell a story? an honest one that reflects the truth of all its participants.  I sat down with Dina Kraft, an experienced  journalist (New York Times, Haaretz, Christian Science monitor) and tried to figure out how does she manage to bring to life different stories with her words. Dina tells a few heart wrenching stories that bring both of us to tears.   I would love to dedicate this episode to my friend Josh Mitnick - Husband, father and a journalist who passed last year. much too soon.   visit the Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100072552783685   Email me: asafpodcast@gmail.com follow me on instagram : https://www.instagram.com/asaf_maoz/?hl=en
