  1. I can hear a differance - some of the horn players are playing some notes longer than the others. Not every player is playing exsactly the same. I am a pro classical musician so can easly tell these things.
  2. Ooohh that face sends shivers down my back - was once conducted by him - I was playing principle oboe with the Orchestra of Opera North doing his Requiem (tones of oboe solo's). Now its comon for oboists to lick their reed a lot during concerts to keep reeds moist - however, every time I put the oboe to my face to lick the reed, he thought I was about to come in at the wrong place - each time in the concert he would start manicly waving at me - and each time he would give me Kittens because I thought he's waving at me becuase I was late :s haha
  3. I think you'll find that your impression of Conductor's is based on the few, rather than the many......Yes, I've worked with a few conductors who are on permanent power-trips, but I've also worked with many who are just normal people. Ever conductor hastheir own methods of getting things right - in the end, if there's a cock-up, the blame will always be aimed at the conductor, so they HAVE to get it right somehow.....The method mentioned earlier of just standing and staring at someone for 10 seconds is actually a very good one (one I have used on occasions).....

  4. Im a Classical musician - and have a moto concering not looking at conductors "Use the force, your eyes will decieve you". Most conductors are pure evil on an ego trip. They wave their sicks about and think we are spose to understand what they are doing.... Ive been in orchestra's where the conductor has sacked players for playing a wrong note in the first rehearsal! On John Williams he is a good conductor as he's very clear - he just gets on with job in hand - a 4/4 beat is a 4/4 beat, he keeps things simple and to the point!
