This will become GMG's most popular thread, ever.

No it won't.

Continuing on the Bach blitz.  Janowitz is esp. strong in this recording.  RE: HvK, I love the variation here on the two-hand baton clutch, an affectation normally used to convey intensity and commitment to the music.  (Or simply a conductor's unwillingness to share his/her stick).  This version is actually stronger, more graceful, suggesting not just the aforementioned, but also latency, power about to be unleashed.  Capable hands those.



 (This thread is already starting to subsume other threads and WILL take over).  "What are you currently listening to" will acquiesce and wither...

Wozzeck really was the best opera of the 20th century.

No they wont.
Dear Hans Rott
In the 1980s there was a creative punk group called "Big Audio Dynamite".  I have decided to apply the term to you, my man.  And I still haven't properly finished your Screenplay yet.  Too bad.  Take care anyway old chum, I'm off to listen to Brahms!
Kind regards, John

Uncontradictable that, even if it were contradictable which it is not because of the thread wherein we live.  Hermann Bäumer here demonstrating the relaxed two-hand baton clutch:

The cult of Beethoven (for which he himself bears little responsibility) had a stifling and deleterious influence on subsequent composers.

The Austrian-German Canon (for which the composers themselves bear little responsibility) had a stifling and deleterious influence on subsequent composers.

The contemporary concert life has not yet fully recovered from the stifling and deleterious influence of both the cult of Beethoven and the Austrian-German Canon.

EDIT: Some people will never recover from the stifling and deleterious influence of both the cult of Beethoven and the Austrian-German Canon. They are not even aware of the problem.
