  1. Confession I've never listened to Bolero without pausing or switching to another task. This piece makes me so anxious!

  2. me alegra que nuestro Dudamel deje en alto a nuestro país Venezuela y haga honores al maestro Abreu…DIOS te bendiga niño hermoso e ingenioso…sigue asi vas muy bien….!

  3. The longest crescendo: 17 minutes ! And Ravel composed it just to study the sounds of the orchestra. One never know when a work of art will pop up.

  4. Talk to me about conductors. How much do they actually do. If you watch something like this, sure they're feeling the music and moving perfectly synchronized with it, but by the time they get to perform on stage like this, are the musicians needing his direction? I imagine they could do their individual parts with their eyes closed (not looking at the music sheet or looking at a conductor). Or are we not seeing most of the work a conductor actually does, perhaps 99% of it is done before they even go on stage, in terms of directing the musicians during practice sessions and deciding how the interpretation of the piece will be done. Perhaps the stage-conducting part is just something for them to fall back on if they lose concentration and want to get back in time or something.
