Not quite Haitink, but getting there.
He is saying the right things, but as of this morning Hillary has 500 delegates to Bernie’s 70 — and that is all that counts:
Even if he were to become president tomorrow, the Executive Branch has only 33% of the power in the U.S.
Only reform of Congress — which is extremely unlikely — could effect the systemic changes Sanders talks of.
So he might as well go into conducting for all the difference he can make.
Your ‘Deep State’ the MIC has the mega trillions, the 66 %….
and the best banksters in the world, the ‘Fed’ Reserve…………infinite money !
He’s great! I’d play beautifully for him in a heartbeat!
No baton. More Masur and Boulez than Haitink then. But still alive.
Boulez never used a baton either.
Which is exactly pedro’s point.
The arts under this person would have a horrible effect. It would be a sad day for not-for-profits. And does his rhetoric say anything about funding the arts after everyone else is taken care of? I don’t think so. People would care less about giving to the arts more than ever.
Exactly. Moving to 78% tax rate will KILL philanthropy in the United States. And unless your city orchestra finds itself on the Washington DC “approved” list for subsidy, you can kiss live classical music good-bye.
Bernie says he’s a definite supporter of the arts:
And likes Beethoven:
He and Vladimir, that other lefty.
It is not far from Herbert Blomstedt style, but not the same repertoire !
What are you saying? He is way more expressive than Haitink!
It would’ve been nice if you’d credited the source of that video. It was on the second installment of the perfectly wonderful new weekly satirical program on TBS hosted by Daily Show alum Samantha Bee: Full Frontal. It’s on Monday evenings and has already become a must-watch.
It doesn’t tell all. Condoleezza Rice was a not bad pianist.
Very cleverly done and gave me a good laugh over my morning coffee!
Markedly more clear and easier to follow than the last conductor I played under.
Training as next conductor in chief.
