On That Note: A Convergence Of Music & Friendships

Robert Cohen, Lake Effect contributor, and Jozef Lupták, Cohen's former student and Konvergencie founder, chat about the Konvergencie festival."

Every month we talk with internationally reknowned cellist Robert Cohen about the life of a touring professional musician. This month, we find Cohen getting ready to go to Slovakia to perform as part of a festival called Konvergencie, or Covergences in English.

This event has a special place in his heart because the festival’s founder, Jozef Lupták, is Cohen's former student and they remain good friends to this day. Not only does Cohen join us from London, but Lupták also joins us on the line from Bratislava — a first for Lake Effect.
