We had gotten a new organised at our church in. He was this young guy back then and some of my friends got studied piano with him. And i had been studying piano at the same ladies since i was six years old. And so i asked my mom if i could change over to to study with james and she said no and so then one time.

What fuel is used. The supplies of alternative jet fuels are very very small. Right now The costs are quite high.

You start to have such high operating costs for those planes. That is very difficult to see them succeed. In the market and referred says eliminating just the carbon emissions is not enough.

The Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Heist
"The isabella stewart gardner. Museum was not surprising when he founded by isabella stewart gardner. She was a very wealthy woman who lived in boston and had a very large art collection. She was known to be very eccentric. Woman who would float the upper-class conventions of the boston elite she famously showed up to a concert of the boston symphony orchestra in one thousand. Nine hundred twelve with a white headband. That said oh you. Red sox and that was a really big deal at the time and caused much clutching of pearls and fainting. She was born into money was married into money and inherited a lot of money. She travelled extensively around the world and purchased are wherever she went. She established the museum in one thousand nine hundred three and worked with museum to curate. Its collection for twenty one years until her death in one thousand nine twenty four at the age of eighty four. She left the museum three point. Six million dollars will and she stipulated that nothing. In the museum's collection should ever be sold. Nothing new should ever be acquired. Any artworks shouldn't even be moved from the walls. She wanted everything to remain exactly as it was by the nineteen eighties. The building housing the collection was getting a bit rundown and security was very lax in one thousand. Nine hundred to the fbi worn the museum of a plan for our robbery but it only resulted in minor upgrades to the security system. The museum had no security cameras installed inside and most importantly the only had a single button with which they could call. The police which was located on the desk of one of the security guards other museums used a system where guard head to call the police every hour to notify them that everything was alright. If a call wasn't made then the police would come and the guards were also paid barely minimum wage. These facts would all become important. The robbers arrived just after midnight on sunday morning. On march eighteenth march seventeenth by the way is saint patrick's day. Which is one of the biggest holidays in boston. And this year. It was happening on a two men who were dressed as policemen there. Witnesses who saw them on the street but they assume that they were police. Never thought anything of it. There were two guards on duty that night. One twenty three years old and one thousand five years old from one of them. It was literally their first night on the job. Museum procedure dictated that one of the guards would patrol the building while the other said at the desk with the button which could notify the police at one twenty. Am the two men in police. Uniforms buzz the side entrance and they said they were there because of disturbance call. The guards didn't know of any disturbance call but they looked like real cops and it was saint patrick's day so something might have happened so they let the police in the men in police. Uniforms told the guard at the desk. Call the other guard down which he did one of the supposed cops then said to the guard behind the desk the desk where the buzzer was. Then he looked like a suspect they were looking for them to come forward which he did and then threw him up against the wall and handcuffed him. They've ended at the same to the other guard. And that's what. They notified them that this was a robbery. They then put tape over. The guards is and head and march them down into the basement where they were tied to pipes. The robbers took their wallets and told them that they knew where they lived in. If they cooperated they would get a reward in a year. All of that took about ten minutes from there. The robbers went into the gallery and started taking art in all. They took thirteen items an ancient chinese vase. A golden eagle from an unholy flag five sketches from gaza. Three works of rembrandt one from any one from flink and biggest of all the concert by vermeer one of only thirty four known vermeer paintings in the world. The robbers checked on the guards before they left. Took the security tape and left the building. The entire operation took eighty one minutes. The total estimated value of everything which was taken has been placed as high as five hundred million The vermeer itself was worth half the entire amount and it is believed to be the most expensive stolen object in the world when the next shift of guards arrived. They couldn't contact anyone to be let inside. They contacted the police who then finally found the guards bound and tied in the basement. With your work gone. The question then turned to who did it and whereas the art one of the things that stood out is that the robbers probably weren't experts in art and they probably weren't sent there to steal something in particular the way they handled the art indicated. Lack of familiarity moreover. They didn't take some far more. Valuable objects works by raphael michelangelo anticipations the rape of europa probably the most valuable object in the museum were untouched.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Janissary Music
"I'm Naomi Moon Welcome to classics for. Kids. Let's start this show off with a bang. You. Know how? When a certain kind of music catches on whether it's rap or jazz or Latino suddenly you hear it all over well, all over Europe in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries you would have heard Turkish flavored music like this marked by Ludwik von Beethoven. A very reasonable question would be if Beethoven was German, what was he doing writing Turkish music? The Sultan who ruled Turkey used to have a very select group of guards called Jan Aseries, actually, jams areas, what the Turkish term for new army sounded like to European ears like most armies. The Janice series had a band and since this was a Turkish army, the Janice every band used Turkish instruments like bass drums, triangles, and cymbals when the Sultan of Turkey since January, bands to Europe people went nuts over the exotic sound of those instruments hey, couldn't get enough of Turkish. Music. European composers knowing what their audiences wanted to hear started writing. Turkish. Sounding pieces and even set some of those pieces in Turkey This is the overture to Mozart's opera the abduction from the Seraglio. Seraglio. Was the Turkish Sultan's palace a palace which he kept US sizable Harem of wives. Plural. Very poor. Mozart wasn't the only composer to set an opera in Turkey German composer. Carl Maria. Von Vaber did to and he even gave his opera a Turkish name. Abu Hassan. And Turkish sounds crept into orchestra music too. For Instance Haydn's symphony number one. Kendrick. Since people associated the sound of drums, triangles and cymbals with Turkish army bands that Haydn symphony came to be known as the Military Symphony. The best symbols in the world are still made by the same family that made them in Haydn's day the Zil jains, the name zillion is Turkish for symbol maker a Turkish Sultan gave it to the first symbol maker in the family almost four centuries ago today zillions live in Massachusetts where they make the symbols you here in rock bands and symphony orchestras. That's from Wellington's victory by Beethoven. After. The FAD for January music died down the cymbals bass drums and triangles didn't go back to Turkey those instruments. Oh, their place in today's orchestras and bands to the eighteenth century European craze for Turkish music of all the composer's latched onto the sound of the January band I think Beethoven did it best? My favorite bit of January music is tucked into the middle of the last movement of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony. That Sound is a controversy soon, the lowest pitched woodwind instrument there is it's acting almost like a bass drum. Back when January music was popular, you could buy a piano equipped with a special. January pedal by thumping down on it, you could accompany yourself with your own personal triangle and drums percussion section. Unfortunately today, those pianos are only found in museums when both amodio Mozart composed his Turkish Rondo he managed to get the piano to imitate Janice drums even without a special pedal. That's Mozart's Turkish Rondo. Now that you know about the Turkish part to find out what a Rondo is, join me next time for classics for kids.

The History Of Jazz in Classical Music
"Welcome to classics for Kids I'm Naomi Lewin. RHAPSODY in blue. The name that IRA Gershwin suggested to his brother. George is perfect for a piece of classical music. That uses Jazz George. Gershwin wrote a lot of classical music that uses jazz. Jazz the word blue refers to changing some of the notes of musical scale to blur the lines between major. And Minor. George Gershwin wasn't the only classical composer to put jazz his music. He wasn't even the first. French composer Darius Milhaud Love Jazz. He used different kinds of in different pieces. Neo wrote leboeuf's your Twat French. For the Hawks on the roof under the influence of a trip to Brazil then he studied American jazz and started using it to a lot of European composers were intrigued by American jazz, Maurice rebel, but composer who wouldn't let Gershwin study with him because he didn't want to corrupt, his music wrote a piano concerto. That sounded a lot like Gershwin. Russian composers got into the to when the Soviet Union held an official competition to raise the level of jazz in the country. Dmitri Shostakovich wrote his first jazz. After they organized an official. Soviet state jazz orchestra. Shostakovich wrote another jazz suite Russian composer eager. Stravinsky love jazz to his Ebony. Concerto is for clarinet and jazz band. Stravinsky wrote it for Woody Herman and his thundering herd. The clarinet soloist on that recording is Benny. Goodman and American musician, who back and forth between popular and classical music, just like George Gershwin another American. Who did that was Leonard Bernstein.

Zoom could be the new language of film
"Traditional film and television. Production has obviously been halted in the wake of the Kobe. Nineteen outbreak but even when production does resume. This time that we're in could have a profound impact on the way we make movies in the future. People at home are getting super creative. With video whether it's compilations sing alongs over video chat or episodes of snl filmed all at home and Hornets is the film critic for The Washington Post and she says all of this will eventually start showing up in the movies. You know one of the early examples that brought me optimism. Was this amazing video that a member of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. Jeffrey Beecher did of members of his orchestra performing the Appalachian Spring. He very ingeniously cut out the the click track to all of his musicians and they film themselves on their iphones. But then he edited it to resemble a zoom video that found its way into this artistic language that he used that was kind of universal and also very specific to this particular time. And now we're seeing television. Episodes being filmed that way. The parks and recreation reunion was formed to resemble videoconferencing. There will be a feature movie made on Zoom. I'm just convinced of it. And it's just a matter of when and who will make. Do you think it will be made zoom because it will be the only tool available and people being quarantine or because it has now become sort of this like you said immediately recognisable visual language. I think mostly the ladder and I do think that it will be the Lingua Franca of this time. There is no doubt in my mind anybody who's telling a story about this time. That's the way you're going to have to to make it even. If you're not literally making it that way you're going to need to edit and tweak it to resemble that because it's just that's where that's literally where we are. I don't want to call it a revolution necessarily but just the aesthetic promise of that has yet to be fully fully plumbed. Yeah how long will that pipeline be? Do you think I mean? Is it going to be like in two years? All of a sudden every movie has the look of Spring. Twenty twenty movies feature films major feature films. Generally you know you're looking at a year and a half two year kind of a lag time so then you run the risk of looking kind of dated by then by that time you know. I think a half to happen sooner than that. I mean interesting kind of looking back on all the different ways. That filmmakers responded to the iphone like. They've always responded to technological innovation both in terms of just the the content of their films in their formal innovation. But Yeah I think that two year lag time does kind of run the risk of looking a little bit like you're the curve and then I guess one of the other legs of course is how and where we watch these films you've written about small art house cinemas to show films in this time and get by economically. Tell me about that. When theaters closed in March it was mostly a function of Local ordinances was. It was kind of it. They were caught unawares but they were proceeding accordingly until they couldn't anymore for the most part the big chains closed and that was it but these small independent theaters very quickly pivoted in very responsive and creative ways and They went to many of them. Went to these digital streaming options where they could direct their patrons to their websites where they could access digital links to some of the movies that they had already playing and some actually kind of brand new movies to their to their audiences and I think it was a real example of how that independent arthouse world has always been about cultivating their audience capturing their audience being able to communicate with them via email and newsletters and extra programming and Clubs and that's been the way they do their business anyway but then that turned out to be just such a crucial factor in them writing this out in a way that kept their audience with them provided them something to do and to watch during this time. When everybody's desperate for something new to watch and you know keep a little bit of revenue coming in not not millions and millions of dollars but enough to make a little bit of a difference and with a business that so the margins are so razor thin anyway. A little goes a long way. And they're very resourceful with with using those dollars so I've been really really impressed to see how those theaters and the distributors who have given them the movies. Tim Show have have really banded together to kind of forge through this moment. Yeah you you almost wonder what places like that with communities like that could be able to build when they don't have a geographic restriction in some ways exactly and I think a lot of them are discovering that very thing you know they're getting. I spoke with the Executive Director of a nonprofit theater in Baltimore where I live. And she's getting viewers from Canada Alaska. And you know. I think it'll be very interesting to watch what sticks you know. After people do feel comfortable and liberated to come back into the theaters. Some untapped audiences have been identified in this and I know for a fact that a lot of these theaters have zero intention of letting them go. You know they. They are very interested in keeping them around and learning more about them and learning more about how best to communicate with them going forward at and that's two of their local audiences too by the way.
Why Circular Conversational Design is Best with Alison Greenberg, CEO at aflow
"Was reading online. That you have a pretty impressive background you went to Yell. And you studied anthropology you played in the Symphony Orchestra there. And then you did some work in the arts for Awhile and now you work in voice technology and there's been a lot of people that have come from the creative space so I'd love for you to talk about briefly your journey into how and why you got into voice technology years ago. Yeah absolutely well. One of my favorite things about this industry is how cross-disciplinary it is. There's really not one background of people who under boys and I don't think many different in that respect but I will say that really from the time I could talk. Language wasn't just the way I express myself it's Mike Currency and so music is something that I was always drawn to. I played music in high school and College. I still to this day. I studied anthropology because of how central language was to it as a social science. I didn't study English or history. I studied a social science because I loved looking at language as a tool and as a currency especially in ultra contacts and in the voice industry but actually with my company of flow we started with chat bots. Language is very much currency of conversational user. Interfaces or curious as we call them and so you know voice and chat go hand in hand they are. Interbay says that requires specificity precision and entertaining use of language but the design principles across voice and chat. Can you really different? And so- entering Voice Technology. You know it's kind of a misnomer. I didn't enter voice technology. I entered chat and that was because when we started flow. Mico Gandara South Miller was actually the driving force behind beginning not company and he was noticing automation taking he was noticing the role of AI in businesses in communications and he started to build the baht of an NBA all star name Russell Westbrook at the time of Oklahoma City Thunder and that was our first bought and then we started to build from there realizing that we scale communications we could even skill personas and brand identities into these conversational experience and so while we believed that automation and I were powering communication. We also believe that is really immature. I don't know if you hear this often but do people ever talk to you about kind of how I is lacking yes. That's definitely something that comes up and I know especially when it came out a couple years ago and consumers used it. There was kind of frustration and so I feel like there's now this like element of education and awareness of like. No it's growing and and we're working on it and getting people to understand that totally. Yeah I mean in technology. You hear a lot about the hype cycle rate. So we might be in that trough of disillusionment which is a piece of language. I just love it's kind of various the trump disillusionment makes sense. Alexa is a teenager. You know came out. In two thousand four chat bots really the dawn of chat bots was in the mid twenty tonnes. We are looking at technologies. That are not just immature in some time. They're immature in the sense of the amount of work that has to go into making them seem less so this industry needs our help. Our words and our design for it to actually work. It's not intelligent yet right so if a is a teenager you know. Teenagers can crash your car. Teenagers can make a lot of mistakes and do a lot of damage especially on the part of brands but teenagers can also change the world so just look at Greta. Van Ver look at the kinds of young people who are driving social change today. That's the approach that we take to chat and voice it'll flow and match. Why we built the concept of conversational design is because we believe that we have to work together with these systems and with the power moderation and conversation design is actually the most important part of Charlton boys today. If these systems are designed well technology to incredible but it's not going to work welter these her. Yeah which brings me to. You made a comment in another interview. You did how you talked about. Hamas boys conversations are linear and what you do out of flow as you really work on creating a circular conversational design. Can you describe the different? So people understand it and why it's important to what you do at a flow hersher. Yeah so out of what we developed. Circular Conversation Design as our attempts to fix these broken visual and verbal designs. Keeps the industry has kind of had to back dialogue into the tools that we have to build it. And so I think really voice and charter just like any industry were almost only as good as our tools and so what we do to kind of choose actualized or conversation design. We talk about a traffic circle. Have you ever been a England or actually you live in New Jersey? I was GonNa say we definitely have traffic circles in New Jersey? So yes perfect. Yes so we'll have talking to people who've been to New Jersey because you're intimately familiar with the roundabout traffic circle. You know you have to get on a certain point and then you make turtles people who aren't from UK or New Jersey. These very confusing carry. I've learned But the cool thing about around about or traffic circle as you can get on off any talk and so if you miss your exit you just keep going in the circle. You have another opportunity to make that exit once you exit you can drive through the backup but you always have an opportunity to get back on. And that's how human conversations work the tools of the trade up until now have kind of destroyed the potential conversations. I in my opinion because we've mainly used the decision tree right. So that's linear design thinking conversations as linear. But that's not how we speak. You know I could talk to you right now about projects for doing it a flow. We can pivot to women and boys. I could ask you what it's like to live in New Jersey. That's how communication works. There's so many circles within circles. There's so many overlaps in and crossed actions and so we had a great experience actually Boy Summit last summer we were really lucky to be part of Amazon's conversation design workshop. One got to take some great echo. Show fives and They disqualified anyone who designed using a decision tree. And so that kind of shows you the way that the industry has been. I know a lot of designer still used decision trees. And it's because it's how away to understand the computer logic but we don't conversational napster and we think of them as a set of nodes that are all linked to one another wherever and whenever possible in a circular fashion and just like that traffics. Are you have to be able to get on and get off at any point?

Musicians Are Canceling & Postponing Asian Tour Dates Due to Coronavirus Concerns
"The Corona Virus Ariss already has claimed more than one thousand lives in mainland China since it was first detected in the city of Wuhan. The virus has spread to two dozen other countries injuries and now some bands and musicians are postponing or altogether canceling tour dates in Asia. I spoke with billboards. Pop correspondent Tamar Herman About Corona virus concerns and she started by telling me which acts have been affected by the Healthcare Bryant. Now we're seeing a lot of artists canceling events in Asia Who you know? Spend the board. Whether they're China focused axe Japanese. Ask reenact the pixies just cancelled something. You know the Boston Orchestra cancelled a a lot of K pop and Hong Kong based in Mando Pop. Artists are canceling their tours within Asia. But beyond that we're starting to see some Asian acts cancel their tours beyond Asia. So so a few K pop groups recently cancelled European legs of their tour in addition to either postponing or cancelling dates of shows in Asia. So we're kind of seeing a lot of people really Trying to anticipate the worst because we really don't know so much about corona virus right now so I think a lot of people are trying to take a preventative action to make sure that they both artists and as humans. They're not unwittingly the cause of of a mass outbreak. A concert or something so are they concerned that that by staging an event with a lot of people in one place it could accelerate the spread of the virus. Are they worrying about their own personal health. Ulf I guess they could also be worried about whether or not people are going to show up and buy tickets. What are the factors that are going into these decisions? So it's pretty much all of the above you know people will are not really sure how the virus spreads right now. We really don't have a whole lot of information. We just know that it's spreading pretty rapidly so I think there is kind of the concern of artists travelling internationally or just even interacting with more people than usual especially when some parts of China and other other countries are already putting people under quarantine. So kind of just preventative you know. We don't want to engage with the virus. We don't want our fans to engage the virus UK Pop ax gave out. You know masks. They made sure there was hand. Sanitizer in Apple's so and I'm pretty sure that was right as we started hearing about the lack back of masks. And now we're hearing more and more either cancellations or putting off the dates end kind of trying to find some middle ground but a few events are still being held. The With the aid of digital media livestream is and whatnot. Ray Now things are pretty unclear. Nobody really knows what's going on so it just Kinda seems like people are being preventative for the sake of being preventative. A lot of the concern right now is in Asia but the virus seems to be spreading. Globally are there acts who are now canceling canceling outside of Asia. Maybe in Europe maybe in North America at what point are people reconsidering their entire tours so KEPA play bent seventeen just cancelled the rest of their. Ot World tour. They were supposed to go to Europe and a few other countries in Asia after having already toured throughout Asia in the US and now they just kind of put a halt halt to it and they just said we're not continuing this tour. We don't really know what's going on in Corona viruses. Just too much so we are seeing that another I think another pop group Ab six. It's also canceled their upcoming European tour. Were haven't really heard so many cancellations in the US yet but we also haven't had many cases of corona virus in the US yet. So it could be that there are more in Europe. So we're hearing more beret now. Predominantly the cancellations are Asia based but we're increasingly hearing about outside out of Asia as well we're talking with Tamar Herman at billboard about concerts being canceled over corona virus ears when an organization like the Boston symphony any orchestra goes on a tour to Asia. They are in some ways kind of cultural ambassadors. They're bringing their music to an audience. That might not have heard it before. But when pop bands are touring. It's basically how they make a living because streaming has really impacted the amount that artist can make off of record sales. So how important. Horton is touring and the merchandise related terrain to most bands. And it's GONNA be a financial problem for a lot of bands. Were having to cancel. Yeah it's wearing makes a lot of money so so you know the the postponements kind of makes sense for the few acts that have postponed their tours in there could probably try to re new pick a new date. That's GonNa be a way that we're going to the artist. Try Not to lose out on the money but artists that have canceled their whole tours like beyond even the pop ax. We see also not only Boston Symphony Orchestra. The National National Symphony Orchestra have canceled their Tornado. Like we're seeing total shutouts happening and so it's not only going to impact them financially because now oh you know they've already signed contracts with their performers. They're not making any money soon that the orchestra still has to pay their staff. There's going to be a huge lost their size soon. Boom we're GONNA see some bands in some companies. TRY TO RECOVER THEIR LOSS by setting up last minute events or concerts in the near future closer to home. Maybe but concerts ticket. Sales are GONNA have to be refunded. That's going to be huge loss for companies as I mentioned that group seventeen. They closed out the whole tour and they had had huge arenas that they were performing and so now they have old loss of ticket and revenue and just the general contractor fees that you put into when you're putting on a a show you're paying promoters you. These people still have to be paid so I think we're GONNA see pretty sizable losses to some degree. Depending on how these companies recover recover their losses. And it's time will tell how big these losses are but it's pretty sizeable just in the moment to see you know saying. Oh we're we're shutting out three five ten dates that we've already sold tickets for that many has to be refunded. The money has to be found somehow in other business. You know. We're probably GONNA you see a big dip in a lot of music companies if this keeps on happening so the death toll from the corona virus has surpassed one thousand people in mainland China which has passed what SARS killed in two thousand and three. So how. How are the cancellations compared to what happened around? SARS seventeen years ago right now AL I. It's really hard to compare this just starting. We don't know how long this is going to last. And hopefully things can be figured out more quickly than that Tamar. Herman is a pop correspondent for Billboard Tamar. Thanks so much for coming on the

The Story of Lt. Kije
"Welcome to classics for kids. I'm Naomi Lewin. You've probably read a story or seen a movie or TV. Show in which someone tells a little white lie and then has to invent bigger and bigger and and bigger lies to cover up for the first one. That's sort of what happens in the story of Lieutenant. TJ Lieutenant Key J. or key J. as it's pronounced in Russian was a book and then a movie about an army the officer who never existed Sergei Prokofiev composed music for the movie. Lieutenant J. is a satire. A story that pokes fun at someone or for something in this case. It's czar the leader. who used to rule? Russia and all the people who work for him. The story begins with a copying mistake on a list of soldiers. Bizarre reads the mistake as Lieutenant. TJ and thinks gee what an unusual name so he asks everyone about the man. Dan In his army called key Jay. Of course there is no such person but the czar can never be wrong and everyone around him is too scared to say so so they create a whole life for the non-existent lieutenant and key J.. All on paper. Sergei PROKOFIEV's music describes key Jay's life beginning when he was born as key gets older supposedly he falls in love Prokofiev Camila Straits this part of Lieutenant. TJ's life with some unusual instruments that was a double bass which doesn't get to play Solos in an orchestra very often. Next up is the CELESTICA which looks like a tiny piano but sounds like bells Another instrument that Prokofiev used was very new at the time and is still hardly ever found in symphony orchestras. The saxophone after key J. falls in I love he gets married. I there's a wedding procession And then a dance jake. It's promoted but then he does something wrong and get get sent to Siberia as punishment. Siberia is a very frozen part of Russia. That you wouldn't want to spend a whole lot of time in eventually key. Jay is pardoned hardened but of course all of this is only according to army records. Because he doesn't really exist. I'm not sure at what point. TJ takes a sleigh ride. It sounds to cheerful for Siberia when Kijima finally gets promoted again to General Bazaar decides. He has to meet this extraordinary officer at that point. The folks who've been making up a life for tenant key have to bump him off so that the czar won't find out. There is no such person when they do do him in Lieutenant. TJ gets a hero's funeral. The movie Lieutenant Keith. Disappeared for a long time then. A few years ago it turned up on the Internet. You'll find into lake to it on our website and you can hear how the music that Prokofiev turned into the lieutenant. J. Sweet fits into the film.

"Back. I'm Tony here with Ken, David, Missouri. New music director for the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra bobbing a little bit into the music. I ask him. What makes him good at his job? You mentioned the different paths that there are to take to becoming a conductor in the different styles. Ultimately is there one thing that makes a great conductor, or what are you look forward to kind of see that you're doing your job effectively and really kind of leading this extra. This is a great question. I the the job of a conductor in so many ways has changed from even a few decades ago. And of course, a lot of things have stayed or you would hope remain the same. You still want this symbiosis if you will of conductor an orchestra bringing out this this this piece of art. Music in the most magical way than tran- transport, the audience each individual audience member to this this world that still sort of the goal that there's that symbiosis and and this, but how you get. There has changed a little bit are there's there's no more they say, this authoritarian style, it's changed of how we collaborate on on getting to this level this high level of artistry. We still want the highest level of artistry. And the thing for me personally that I also teach conductress now is to make sure that you don't try to be someone else. You try just like composers have tried to figure a way that they can not emulate another composer. But that they can have their own language, and even now, you know, you talk positive trying to find their own way of speaking with their sound world. Tune audience a conductor. And how we get the music out of an orchestra or an on Sombor has to be in my opinion, also personal style physically you have to be comfortable the orchestra can tell when you're not being you trying to be someone else. Of course, the the difficulty lies in being both functional being clear, knowing what did I mean? That's why they are conductors is. So this declaratory of of of beat. Okay. Here's here's the first beat of a measure. He is the second. Here's a third, and let's move in that direction together. So the tempo and how we move and so on. Yes, the craftsmanship if you will the skill level of a conductor, but that is only one way of getting to the ultimate goal, which is to completely let go of all of the technicality. If you will of how to be able to play an instrument note loud, or soft, whatever none of that matters. If it's not part of the context. Cst of telling the story. And so for conducting to me, it's important to be able to emulate that. In the movement. And also to be able to portray that in in. How you bring that across without standing in the way of the orchestra reaching its highest level and being able to play without distraction. So it is it is something of a of a finding process for any conductor defined. How do I get the best out of the music? How do I get the best do basically not make an orchestra sound worse than it can sound? But the opposite know our job is to try to get the best sound the sound where they're really happy with how they're sounding and the composer. If it's a living composer is going to be very happy with how. Like that. Of course is the ultimate goal coming up next time WTMJ conversations, you know, when people said, well, would you be interested in something like the Milwaukee symphony? I said, well, I mean, I don't know why why are you asking because I'm sure you're ready. Have somebody from Boston to the Bruce city.
