'It's been a hard day," says Vasily Petrenko, with a broad grin. "I could do with a pint." He doesn't seem remotely tired - although he is, undoubtedly, a busy man. Petrenko, a big, blond, handsome St Petersburger, is principal conductor of the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. With Liverpool now the European Capital of Culture, this means he has a lot on his plate.
