Under the baton of Maestro Kurt Masur! Trollhättan Sweden

Under the baton of Maestro Kurt Masur!
Just spent the week performing Schumann’s 4th Symphony & Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture with the Aurora Festival Orchestra!
Loved his unabashed shouts whilst rehearsing the clarinet solo in the Wagner… “MORE EROTIC! You are Venus, the most beautiful women in the whole world. She is the embodiment of EROTIC! Mehrrrr EROTIC!!!!”
I briefly contemplated taking all my clothes off whilst playing – but then decided that putting more heart&soul into the hairpin dynamics would suffice. ‘Twas a blast!
It was beautiful to still see how at 88 years old he can still energise 100+ musicians with his sheer passion for music!
