This comes to us courtesy of TED Talks. Here, Itay Talgam, an Israeli conductor, talks about the art of leading an orchestra and shows the styles of six great 20th-century conductors. Ultimately, there are some general lessons here. Lessons about leadership. Give it a few minutes, and it gets going. Meanwhile, on a related note, you might want to check out Yale’s new open course, Listening to Music, which uses classical musical to make sense of music more generally. Thanks Vickie for the great find.
