Mahler’s 9th, postscript: A Little Eye Candy!

NaBloPoMo Day 23!

Not that kind of eye candy (sorry to disappoint!) 😉

A quick post today, as I’m visiting my sister-in-law, who is due to bring another nephew into the world for me very soon! 😀

I poked fun at the conductor yesterday, so today I’ll atone by showing some good conductor shots. First, the beginning of the piece. This performance is by a youth orchestra — pretty amazing for a piece that demands a high level of emotional maturity:

And here’s Leonard Bernstein conducting the ending, and providing some commentary as well (though I’d prefer it with just the music!) Check out those facial expressions! 🙂

Live performance is great for the visuals as well as the sound! 🙂
