Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. I would drink good French wine.

Q. How would you describe perfect happiness?

A. Is there such a thing? Happiness, for me, is a moment here-and-there when everything that crowds your life drops away and you are simply aware of the pleasure of the moment.
Or perhaps it's walking Popham Beach near my house in Maine - and the most beautiful beach in New England - with
my two very wonderful children, Max and Amelia, on a winter's day when we had the entire three miles of sand to ourselves, and nothing really mattered except that we were all together on this extraordinary stretch of the Maine Coast.

Q. What is your biggest pet peeve?

A. People who think they have the answers. Nobody has the answers.

Q. What’s your fantasy profession?

A. Conducting the Berlin Philharmonic or playing a piano jazz gig at the Village Vanguard - two things that are not going to happen within my lifetime.
