Being a conductor

One can find a whole universe behind the profession of a conductor. There lie depth, philosophy, psychology, unity in the creative process, nevertheless the joy of making music with other people. To dig as deep as possible into the work of a genius can be the closest one might get to epiphany.

For a conductor to leave a personal mark in each composition, by shaping an individual sound, or create a moment with his fellow colleagues, where time stays still, is something, which we all musicians live for.
