Rehearsing Shostakovich 5 pieces for 2 violins and piano in Los Angeles with Etienne Gara and Yuja Wang.


  • Alexander Hall says:

    On the Berlin Philharmonic website you can also see him pressing a few piano keys together with one of their hornists (Sarah Willis) to demonstrate how “easy” some of the pieces were that Stravinsky wrote. Is there no end to his myriad talents?

  • Mare says:

    Was there in the 3rd row at the Konzerthaus when he conducted Beethoven’s Ninth in Vienna in very late October 2013. I never saw a conductor with less ego and more humility. He directed all accolades to the musicians and vocalists, never once for himself. I was so very impressed.

  • I’m not listening… 🙂
