Why did the cellos play so badly?

Roger Nierenberg runs courses in which commercial executives sit inside an orchestra and learn about all the things that can possibly go wrong – in art, as in business.

It’s about making the right decisions, he says. Like the way Carlos Kleiber changed the way the Met orchestra played.

Roger demonstrates his method to Zsolt Bognar on Living the Classical Life.

    Because the conductor looked at the cellists thus -encouraging- them. Ha Ha Ha.

  • DESR says:

    How did CK make the Met orchestra play differently?

  • Steven Honigberg says:

    Fabulous interview. Nierenberg is articulate and smart. He should be taken seriously.

  • Cyril Blair says:

    Fascinating. The only issue I have with this series is the volume is always set so low and I can only increase it so much. I wonder if the techs/producers can set the volume to be higher?

    • Zsolt Bognar says:

      Thanks so much for watching and for the feedback! I will pass it along to the producers and hopefully it will be improved. Very glad to hear from you.

    God help us from the management consultants.

    Wonderful. Inspiring. Real.
