Thank you for an absolutely wonderful review...I watched the live transmission on my big iMac screen, way up in Mexico's High Sierra. I've never seen him in person, but every live broadcast, DVD or CD he's done are close to me at all times, for as a musician, and 74 years old, no one has inspired me spiritually as has he.
Since his brush with death, something hauntingly beautiful emerged in his conducting...everyone who loves him noticed the ethereal presence he brought to every performance. His musicians worship him for many reasons..I, because he opens doors to music, new or familiar,and leads us gently through to a magical world beyond those thresholds. You obviously understand, my dear Sir. Thank you again.
