Maestro Masur

An unfinished sketch from another classical concert this weekend. The conductor, Kurt Masur, was amazing to watch. He had such a subtle way of communicating with the orchestra. He had none of the vivid gestures I´ve seen with other conductors, but he was oh so clear with his soft gestures and facial expressions. He had the complete scores of the two symphonies in his head (I´m sure there were many more in there too), no need for papers. I got the feeling he was playing the whole orchestra as an instrument. Pure magic.
