Connection

Please indulge me again. I know I keep coming back to this piece. The music is sublime, but I’ve come back to this little video at least once a week for years, I think, because the intense and delightful connection between conductor, musicians and choir leaves me utterly spellbound. Note the conductor’s continued concentration and movement into the silence at the end of the piece – and his delight, throughout, in both the music and the connection. I think this is close to musical perfection … as some of you may have noticed from time to time in the past!
