Zubin Mehta's Interview

Charlie Rose spoke to Zubin Mehta on Jan 5th 2007. It's not an extraordinary interview but one can learn a bit about Mehta - what he likes and dislikes and what he's currently doing and his short take on his love for India. The interview is the second one in the Charlie Rose Show's embedded Google video below - starts around 31:50 minutes. (I am not sure how to slice the Google video.) Hopefully it will be available for free into the future.

I watched his Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra on 2007 New Year's eve - as usual it was very excellent. PBS page on the broadcast is here - unfortunately the performance itself is not on the site (it is available for sale).

I was wondering if anyone remembers the name of the small Japanese town that Mehta said has top flight acoustics.

Mehta talked about Sapporo Hall in Tokyo and, I think this is what you are thinking of, Miyasaki - which is southeast of Japan
